20 years of "The Sports Doctor" on the Radio

Sitting & talking to some local coaches we recalled them being on "the sports doctor" in 1991.
The show was on a local station in Aurora & 2 years later we moved to WDCB at COD in Glen Ellyn.

Wow, that's 20 years ago-- lots of shows, great guests & endless topics, from issues involving foot problems to drugs in sports, high performance athletes, shoe questions, childhood obesity ETC.

We followed the journey of Naperville's Evan Lysacek, from when he first showed up at my office as a 10yr old to his figure skating Olympic Gold Medal in 2010.
Chris Fox, sports director for "the Lombardian" newspaper in Lombard, has been my side-kick since we moved to WDCB.
We've had doctors, therapists, athletes, coaches, parents & trainers as guests
Of course, being in Chicago, such a great sports town, sports medicine issues of all our local teams have been topics-- teams & sports clubs at all levels & ages.

Often, I'm answering e-mail questions from listeners as well as readers of my sports doctor collums & articles. We're really excited about adding CHICAGONOW blog enthusiasts to the group

Go to sportsdoctorradio.com to hear many past radio shows & past articles.

We've gone from reel to reel tapes to cassettes to CD to discs to the Internet & cyberspace in the recording of "the sports doctor".
Who knows what the next 20 years will bring!!
Special thanks to all our listeners & guests-- KEEP ON TUNING IN-- Thursdays, 6:30-7pm, WDCB, 90.9fm

    The Sports Doctor

    Born and raised in New York, I've practiced podiatry & sports medicine for over 30 years in the Aurora- Naperville area (almost BUT NOT QUITE LONG ENOUGH to lose my NY accent ). You can check that out for yourselves by listening to "The Sports Doctor," my weekly radio show on WDCB, 90.9 FM, Thursdays from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Go to sportsdoctorradio.com to hear many past shows & read many articles under the heading The Sports Doctor. My specialty in sports medicine is orthotic therapy, combined with specific training & strengthening of the feet & ankles. I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best athletes in all sports including many of the Super Bowl Bears back in the 80's, tennis greats John McEnroe & Tracy Austin, & numerous Cubs & White Sox. A true highlight of my career was watching Naperville's hometown figure skater Evan Lysacek, who I first saw as a nine-year-old and put orthotics in his skates, win the 2010 Olympic Gold Medal for men's figure skating with his orthotics (updated of course!) still in his boots. These high performance youngsters still remain my passion. Another big interest of mine is the challenge of our countries greatest epidemic: childhood obesity. I've been co-hosting "Kids Beating Obesity," a podcast produced by WDCB co-hosted by Rick Osbourne, author & creator of Pull Your Own Weight, an innovative simple method for kids to "immunize themselves against obesity for life." You can access the podcast by going to wdcb.org, click new media, click kids beating obesity.
