Why are sports injuries so common? How can we not only avoid injury, but maximize performance? Dr. Tommy John owns and runs the Dr. Tommy John Performance and Healing Center in San Diego and is the author of “Minimize Injury, Maximize Performance: A Sports Parent’s Survival Guide.”
Today, he shares insights on what children--and athletes of all ages--can do to not merely survive, but thrive in the activity of their choice. He reviews a list of essentials for optimal health and he reminds us of the power we have to shape our own health and athletic performance. He covers what to do about cravings, how to nourish young athletes on the go, and how to learn to listen to our own intuition about what our bodies need most.
