Coming Soon to Sports Injury Info


Ever wonder what that bump on the front of your knee is called? Or where exactly is the medial collateral ligament? How about the spot on the ankle where you are most likely to be painful if you have peroneal tendonitis?
Now imagine being able to see a video, with someone who knows all about anatomy showing you exactly what is what in the knee, elbow, ankle, and shoulder.

It is your own personal tour of the human body, hosted by me, your friendly certified athletic trainer.

Anatomy videos are in the works, and should be available in late July. Keep your eyes peeled for a special edition of the Athletic Trainers Corner announcing their arrival.
