Train like an athlete, recover like an athlete
Professional athletes are given access to the highest standards of care. They are exposed to experts in their field, all working together to get them back on top form as fast as possible. They have access to the latest treatment technology, immediate scans and teams of specialists: from doctors and physiotherapists to nutritionists and strength and conditioning coaches. What can we learn from this? And how can this model be replicated to benefit the general public in a cost effective and accessible way?
