MSG: October 18, 2018
MSG hosted HSS primary care sports medicine physician Brett G. Toresdahl, MD, live on-air at the Invesco Tennis Series to discuss common injuries and treatment options for tennis players.
"I work with a lot of active individuals. A lot of those are recreational and some competitive tennis players. In my training, I was working with a lot of college tennis players, and so right now it's exciting to start to work with a different generation," said Dr. Toresdahl.
In terms of treating various tennis injuries, Dr. Toresdahl said "for some people, it really just requires adequate rest…. Injections or surgery can be helpful, but try to do the least necessary to get [the athlete] back as quickly as possible."
This aired during the October 18, 2018 broadcast.
