On today's episode, I have special guest Mick Hughes is physio in Melbourne, Australia who specializes in ACL rehab. I’ve had the privilege of connecting with Mick through IG and have definitely enjoyed and learned a lot from the content he posts. He’s even developed his own criterion based protocol which we discuss on the show.

  1. Mick's background
  2. What made Mick decide to specialize in ACL rehab?
