It’s truly amazing how fast a year goes by. Dusty and I started The QB Docs Podcast one year ago and we are now 104 episodes in. We have had 27,000 downloads across a span of 50 countries. It’s been amazing to see the response. We truly thank any of you that are reading this that listen to the podcast as well. We have been able to talk to many great guests that surround the football arena from physical therapists to college coaches. We even got to talk to some yoga experts and strength and conditioning experts. With that said, we want to recap the top 5 downloaded podcast episodes from this past year.
#5 Sue Falsone Interview
Sue is an expert physical therapist and has niched down even further into overhead athletes. She gave a lot of great explanations on how the body is one big kinetic chain. One of her examples was how an issue in stability in the left foot can cause pain in the right shoulder. We were honored that she came on since we have followed her work for a long time. Her book “Bridging the Gap Between Rehab and Performance” is one of the best performance books that is out there. You better check it out! Listen to Sue’s podcast below!

Jill is one of the smartest people that we know. She has made herself into an expert in everything regarding fascia and the nervous system. She has bridged the gap between the mind and body by having a deep understanding of how they relate to each other.
