We all have that kid who either wants to work really hard and just can't do to injury or that wants to use the injury as a reason to be lazy. We are also faced with man power issues in that if we cannot babysit those the whole time. Athletic Trainers need to have a list of exercises to pull from knowing we will not cause harm to the injured site.

Just two years out of college Eric Rueda is looking to learn or as Mike Hopper once said “green and growing”. He really enjoys reading articles and finding out why we do things the way we do as athletic trainers. I love that he is learning and passionate about improving the health and safety of his athletes.
After the interview Eric went to thank the people he mentioned in the show. You never know when your last opportunity to be grateful is.
I am so thankful for each listener of the Sports Medicine Broadcast. I hope that I got to meet you at NATA or will get to soon. Please contact me if there is something I can do to help you improve the practice as an Athletic Trainer.
