Hip Flexor Injury Exercise Considerations with Dr. Casey Kerrigan

These interview things are so much fun.

I am so excited to have another one for you.

I know, not many people get excited about injuries, but I do. Sorry.

About the interview, it is with Dr. Casey Kerrigan.

You might remember Dr. Kerrigan from the High Heel Pain post.

Dr. Kerrigan contacted me after she stumbled on my post and asked if we could do an interview.

She said she had a lot to share which was not seen in the research.

How cool is that?

We go through it all in the audio interview:
