Welcome to Session 2 of the Gymnast Care Podcast!

In this session we sit down with Lynn Moskovitz-Thompson, Director of Educational Services for USA Gymnastics. We get into some very serious subjects on the best way to protect our young gymnasts from many different things.

If you are a parent of a gymnast, you need to listen to this session.

Here’s some of the links we discussed in today’s podcast:

4th International Congress on Concussion

  • Darkness to Light
  • Stop it Now

  • USOC Safe Sport Initiative

We also took a very interesting listener question on Sever’s disease (or heel pain in gymnasts). If your athlete is experiencing heel pain, this question might be important for you to listen to!

At Gymnast Care, we’ve developed an amazing protocol for Heel Pain and Sever’s disease. This can be found in the Gymnast Care Book on Injuries. Click here to get you copy now.
