TahoeMtnmel ,

So glad I found this!

Just starting my ACL journey and was frustrated that I couldn’t find an athlete perspective.

Maryou01 ,

So validating and encouraging

I wish I had this resource for acl #1 and #2. Now on #3 and finding so many helpful bits that are both corrective of past experiences and really help me to be just better informed about the recovery process, the medical model and listening to what I need, as well as giving me language to advocate for myself. This podcast and the people that put their heart into creating this, are rockstars. I can’t thank you enough for putting this out to the world.

Brittney, DPT ,

Great info!

Such a great show to support anyone with an ACL injury or treating ACL injuries. Best wishes and thank you for helping me through my 2nd ACL tear!
