Dr. Thomson discusses the importance of the team approach when treating athletes. With constant communication between the team of professionals building a better athlete, patient results and satisfaction tremendously increase. It is important that this team not only communicates often, but is also speaking the same language. The team should include professionals such as coaches, orthopedists, strength and conditioning coaches, etc.
