Dealing With Winter Sports Injuries
We are so excited to talk to Dr. Heather Moore today. Dr. Moore says athletes wait too long to visit their physician for a sports-related injury. Moore says to give an injury two weeks to work itself out. If it’s not better, see a physical therapist. Advil and hot packs only hide the pain, not heal the injury.
