I was searching the web to learn more about cartilage and I came across this beauty of a blog post by Doug Kelsey. A physical therapist and human movement expert since 1981 and a teacher all of his career. He was formerly an Associate Professor and Assistant Dean for Clinical Affairs at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Doug's written several books, conducted over 250 educational seminars for therapists, trainers, physicians and the public. Doug's presented lectures at national and international scientific and professional conferences.
Doug has conducted over 25,000 consultations and more than 100,000 training sessions over his career with people from all walks of life – major league baseball players to weekend warriors to moms and dads and grandmoms and granddads. He understands how to help people recover from injury, disease, and surgery.
