  • On Move Forward Radio: PT Helps Former NFL Player Make the Move to Endurance Sports

    In this week’s episode of Move Forward Radio, former professional football player Don Davey describes how he decided to compete in an ironman competition after retirement from professional football, and how Mike Ryan, PT, ATC, of the Jacksonville Jaguars, helped him reach that goal.

    Ryan, himself a competitive ironman, knew that making Davey's dream possible would require the former defensive tackle to dramatically reshape his body through training regimens built to accommodate football-related injuries. With Ryan's guidance, Davey has now competed in several ironman events.

    Ryan is the head certified athletic trainer/physical therapist of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In addition to taking care of professional football players, Ryan is a 6-time ironman triathlete.

    Move Forward Radio typically airs twice a month. Episodes are featured and archived at MoveForwardPT.com, APTA's official consumer information website, and can be streamed online via Blog Talk Radio or downloaded as a podcast via iTunes.

    Move Forward Radio and other MoveForwardPT.com resources provide PTs with great ways to educate the public about the benefits of treatment by a physical therapist. Ideas for future episodes and other feedback can be e-mailed to consumer@apta.org.
