MLP's Medical Director and Sports Medicine Surgeon Dr. Josh Dines

Inside Major League Pickleball Podcast interviews Joshua S. Dines, MD, sports medicine surgeon at HSS about his role as medical director at Major League Pickleball and how to avoid and handle pickleball related injuries. 

Dr. Dines explained overuse injuries are common in pickleball. “I think the real key with this or any sport is listening to your body. You don't want to try to push through and make something that would have gotten better with rest into a much more serious injury where you miss a lot more time.” 

He continued, “This is a sport you can play year round, so if you miss a couple weeks, it's better than missing a few months because you've tried to push through and now you made it a real injury.”
