Awesome content for Sports Performance

Chad’s podcast is extremely informative with awesome content from his own experience and that experience of his guests. I find myself listening to his episodes for hours at a time without realizing how quickly the time went by. The material is especially helpful for me as a sports medicine physician, but can help anyone out there looking to improve performance as an athlete or practitioner.

A must for Sports Docs

Chad brings his superior knowledge of acupuncture, anatomy, and biomechanics to the world. It’s a real pleasure to hear someone who has knowledge and knows how to communicate.
