Playing Two Different Sports Does a Mind and Body Good

The Wall Street Journal—May 4, 2015

There’s a lot of value in doing other sports that are seemingly unrelated, says Jordan Metzl, MD, a sports-medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. "Mentally, it helps to mix things up," he says. "Physically, if you do the same sport or movements over and over, you risk injury or weaknesses in other areas."
