As always, this episode features hosts Will Sanchez and orthopedic sports medicine specialist Dr. Grant Garcia discussing various topics related to sports medicine and performance enhancement. We discuss the challenges faced by recreational athletes who may not have access to the same resources as professional athletes but also remind our listeners that they still have many options. The show covers advancements in regenerative medicine such as stem cells, wearable technology including smartwatches and glucose monitors, and supplementation with Omega 3, vitamin D, and electrolytes. We also cover topics such as diet, inflammation, hydration, sleep, plyometrics, and stretching. The proactive approach to training involves looking for deficits, appropriate rest and recovery, and advanced PT facilities. This episode also talks about sports surgeons and the latest advancements in injections, cartilage restoration, and biologics. Lastly, we want to emphasize the importance of listening to your body. We hope you enjoy the show while you keep moving and staying in shape. Thanks for listening.
