Dr. Tommy John, son of renowned Major League baseball pitcher, Tommy John Jr, who played in the league for 26 years, was the first person to come back in 1974 from the revolutionary surgery (which was subsequently named after him) which allowed him to continuing playing baseball for an additional 16 years.

Dr. Tommy John, like his father, also played baseball, and it was after a career ending shoulder injury, he went back to school to get his Master's Degree in Health & Human Sciences, so he could help all athletes on their journey to whole health. 

Today we discussed the importance of giving our young athletes rest, proper nutrition and how to proactively raise a healthy athlete who can minimize injury over time. Dr Tommy has a proven four step method to help athletes RETHINK, REPLENISH, REBUILD and RECOVER.
