I’m proud of the work I used to do as a physical therapist and love passing along knowledge from that time in my life, as it can be extremely helpful to people. One of the things I recommend to folks with injuries is ultrasound therapy. Most people haven’t ever heard of it before, but it’s Read More →

Having a disability can be hard as society sometimes tends to shun those who are disabled, but at the same time others also admire them. While this may seem like a double standard, it’s different people that feel differently towards the disabled; some may see them as a burden, while others admire their strength and Read More →

In all the years that I've worked as a physical therapist and a sports agent, there is one thing that I've noticed – most athletes have damaged teeth. This is even more true for athletes who play in the big leagues. These athletes really give life to the saying "Fight tooth and nail". Let me Read More →

An urban bike or fixie bike is the most popular type of bicycle among city dwellers. It is pleasant on the eyes, durable, and very easy to operate. You see, fixies do not come with a gear shift. All you need to do is pedal to make it move. This is why it has become Read More →

One common misconception about athletes is that they live the high life. Being an ex-sports agent, I know that this isn't exactly true because I saw how my clients broke their backs at practices to ensure that they are in tip top shape come game night. Of course, sports fans don't really see this because Read More →

If you’re a fan of the English Premier League (or if you have a strange obsession with following celebrity hair news), then you will have noticed that Wayne Rooney looks entirely different compared to a few short years ago. The guy started balding even before he burst onto the scene at 16, yet at 28 Read More →
