My New Book Is out
SPORTS MEDICINE ESSENTIALS: CORE CONCEPTS IN ATHLETIC TRAINING & FITNESS INSTRUCTION, 3rd Edition introduces essential skills in Sports Medicine, along with its growing number of career choices. Key topics address fitness assessment, conditioning, emergency preparedness, injury management, therapeutic modalities, nutrition, ethical and legal considerations, and much more. Students will explore careers in fitness instruction, athletic training, exercise physiology, sports management, and even physical therapy, while practicing important, job-related skills. More than a text, this unique hands-on learning tool asks students to perform essential skills, such as taping injuries, researching sports medicine supplies and their costs, and even forming a mock safety committee to mitigate injury risks to athletes.
Our athletes receive the best care. If you need a referral to see a sports medicine specialist let me know. Riverside Medical Clinic (http://www.riversidemedicalclinic.com) has an incredible medical staff with “Legendary Care” to get you back to your game.
We will be here to help you or your child through any injury that may occur. If you are a high school, college or recreational athletes RMC Sports Clinic is here for you. I have been taking care of athletes for over 33 years. Every day we are excited to have the opportunity to help you.
Concussion care is here the Riverside Medical Clinic. We are on the cutting edge for the evaluation, treatment, prevention, education and implementation of what is needed to be done at the schools. I, as you, want everyone to continue to participate and enjoy sports, there is nothing better. But we are going through a change. It is tough on some people, if someone says there is no such thing as a concussion or they don’t exist– it is time to separate your child from that coach, because it is not a safe environment, because 99.9% of the coach are great and they care for your child. It is important for coaches and parents to understand, the concussion basics, as well as the steps to prevent and properly care for concussed athletes. According to the Center for Disease Control, a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury typically caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head. A concussion can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. This sudden movement of the brain can damage brain cells and create chemical changes in the brain.
Misinformation is what we want to prevent…… we care about each one of your athletes individually. We know that no two athletes are exactly the same, nor are their injuries. Therefore, no two athletes should be treated the same. We pride ourselves on providing an individualistic approach for each concussed athlete. The diagnosis, proper evaluation, treatment and safe return to play programs, are the cornerstones of Riverside Medical Clinic.
Let us share our knowledge with you. Please go to our concussion tab for more information. Any questions e-mail me at email@example.com
Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you on the sidelines!

In Keeping with ACL prevention, Daisy Davalos, Tabitha Toral & Victoria Viramontes from my class at Cal State San Bernardino came up with, a jump rope routine, for your athletes. The importance of this is to 1) land softly 2) Make sure your knee don’t go in 3) knees over your toes. Here is the YouTube.
