On this episode I sit down with St. Louis Cardinals Rehabilitation Performance Specialist, Dr. Azita Nejaddehghan, to talk about the integration of Physical Therapy and Strength & Conditioning in the sport setting. At the time of recording Azita was a member of Louisiana Tech Football's performance staff, more recently, she took on her current role in professional baseball with the St. Louis Cardinals. Azita outlines her path into S&C after earning her DPT degree, how both worlds feed each other in the sport setting, addressing acute injuries and how to meet the athlete where they are, her personalized RTS protocol and progressions/regressions, multidisciplinary collaboration with the entire sports medicine staff, and advice for aspiring sports medicine professionals.
