About the Author
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

About the Author Dr. David Geier is an orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist who provides education and commentary on sports and exercise injuries to athletes and active people to help them stay healthy and perform their best. After spending eight years serving as director of sports medicine at an academic medical center, he left to start his own practice. He currently serves as medical director of sports medicine at a private hospital outside of Charleston, South Carolina. He holds a board certification from the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery in orthopaedic surgery as well as a subspecialty certification in orthopaedic sports medicine. Currently he serves as the Communications Council chair for the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) Board of Directors. He also serves as chairman of the publications committee for AOSSM. He serves on the outreach committee for the STOP Sports Injuries campaign and the medical aspects of sports committee for the South Carolina Medical Association. He has previously served as the chairman of the public relations committee for AOSSM and as a member of the sports medicine evaluation committee for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He started writing articles on his website—DrDavidGeier.com—in August 2010 as a hobby. His goal at the time was simple: to share sports medicine and wellness information in easy-to-understand language for athletes, parents, coaches, and other health-care providers. What he never expected to find back in 2010 was a passion for communicating this information. Despite long hours in clinic and surgery, he is still excited to open his laptop and write. He now writes a regular column for the daily Charleston newspaper, The Post and Courier. He records videos every week answering questions from his audience, and he produces a weekly sports medicine podcast. He also created a networking and educational site for health-care professionals who work with athletes and active people, Sports Medicine University. As of this writing, over 200,000 unique visitors come to his website every month.
