    Orthopedic Cost vs Orthopedic Revenue with Clinton Lee

    Orthopedic Cost vs Orthopedic Revenue with Clinton Lee

    On Episode 132 of the Fitness For The Fairways podcast, Joe sat down with Clinton Lee a Physical Therapist and Owner of Physio Strength in NYC.
    When it comes to performance, many professionals have conflicting ideas on what's good for someone vs what is not. This can make understanding what is best for YOU very difficult.
    This is where the concept of orthopedic cost vs orthopedic revenue comes from. 
    Orthopedic cost = movements and exercises that will break down your body over the long term.
    Orthopedic revenue = movement and exercises that will build longevity and improve health. 
    The question is which exercises are inherently good and which are bad. Maybe the better question is, do they actually exist?
    What you'll learn from this episode.

    On Episode 131 of the Fitness For The Fairways podcast, Joe sat down with Brian McLaughlin, a Doctor of Physical Therapy at Perfect Stride Physical Therapy in NYC.

Fake Name Jonesy ,

Excellent podcast.

Joe has a knack for facilitating great discussions with his podcast guests and brings on a diverse array of people which makes for excellent content. In addition to being very informational, the conversations are easy to listen to and jump right into relevant topics without being too dry or granular. Would highly recommend for athletes and especially if you’re a golf enthusiast.
