Summer was packed with learning for me with 3 Sports Medicine conferences, and 1 podcast conference. I have learned a lot of things but that for the most part we are on the right track. We continue to improve by learning each week from the podcast, and I am working on continually improving the podcast for you.
Thanks for being part of the show Israel and Mickey.

It seems like everyone has the solution to getting better faster, but very few work or are based on evidence. Amy Davila and Ryan Pratt joined me to talk about the science and personal experience behind ARROSTI. I am always curious about new things so they decided to let us see for ourselves.
Email Ryan Pratt and tell you heard about a special deal for athletic trainers from the Sports Medicine Broadcast so you can test out ARROSTI for free.
