Show notes

On today’s episode  today we have special guest Ellie Kiernan who is a sophomore lacrosse player at Georgetown university. Ellie is one of my former patients and is an athlete that trains with us at Healthy Baller. She is the second athlete to be featured on the show. I’ve been fortunate enough to develop a special bond with her and I tell her all the time she is stuck with me.

On today's episode, Ellie and I discuss

  • Ellie's ACL story
  • What was her initial reaction to the news
  • Mental side of rehab
  • How she stayed positive throughout rehab
  • Advice for athletes in the late stages of ACL rehab
  • How she felt when she got cleared
  • How to best support athletes recovering from an ACL tear
  • Advice for other athletes
