What Keeps You coming to work?

Being from the Pacific Northwest Chris loves to be outside.

What is the hardest part of being an MLS AT?

Longest professional sports season

Favorite way to take a break?

Chris Rumsey is an outdoor guy. Really anything outdoros will do, but to really get away he heads back home.

He still needs to explore some more of Europe too.

Hamstring: Early Rehab with Goody – 522

Brian Goodstein aka Goody, is the Head AT for DC united and joins the Sports Medicine Broadcast at the Professional Soccer Athletic Trainers' Society PSATS annual meeting to discuss Hamstring Injuries.

goody, Brian Goodstien, Brian Goodstein, Hamstring, DC United

As a former Strength and Conditioning Coach and Director of Sports Performance at Metro Orthopedic and Sports Therapy, “Goody” is well versed in early stage rehab as well as late stage return to play for most injuries.

Likewise, Brian served one term as vice president and president of PSATS.

Similarly he was a member of the MLS Advisory Committee, and currently serves on the MLS policy and procedures committee, MLS concussion committee, and is on the editorial board for Training and Conditioning Magazine.

Moreover, In 2007 and 2004, he was honored as the MLS Athletic Trainer of the Year.

This is the first in a series of Hamstring injuries podcasts.

So what are we talking about?

Lower leg, hamstring and groin injuries can plague a season for both athletes and teams alike in the MLS. Brian Goodstein, head athletic trainer for DC United shares with us early intervention strategies and early stage rehab considerations.

But I always take 2x the recommended dose

Have an athlete obsessed with ibuprofen? Listen in as to why the pros place an emphasis on NOT taking NSAIDs post injury.

What else are we covering at PSATS?

Where are we?

The beautiful JW Marriott in Grande Lakes Orlando at the Professional Soccer Athletic Trainer Society annual meeting before the combine.

What reasons would you not want a RPSports product?

You do not want a hygienic product.
