Sports Medicine in 140 – Vol. 3

TwitterThe third installment of Sports Medicine in 140 is here! I have decided to post the best sports medicine tweets of the previous month for future Twitter posts, so this feature should appear monthly, hopefully toward the end of the first week of each month. As always, I want this to be a resource that people can use to learn and share sports medicine, health, fitness, and wellness information. Please share this post with any athletes, parents, coaches, healthcare professionals, or sports medicine experts you know. And if there is someone you know who writes tweets that would make good additions here, please let us know. Leave the name and Twitter handle in the Comments below or tweet to @drdavidgeier on Twitter.
