NBC New York—September 1, 2015
NBC New York/Cozi TV’s Marc Santia discusses how the world's top tennis players can prepare for the U.S. Open with Dr. Joshua Dines, sports medicine surgeon at HSS.
"Listen to your body – that's the first thing. The biggest mistake I see people make is that they're playing and it hurts, but they think they're going to push through because they used to when they were 15 or 20. That's when it can lead to further injuries," says Dr. Dines. "Also, be prepared. Stretching before, strengthening before, having reasonable expectations – all of those are really important to preventing injury."
