Dr. John Rusin is a physical therapist, but he's not one of those physical therapists who's going to tell you not to work too hard at the gym. In fact, he's worked with a lot of hardcore athletes - from major league baseball players, to Olympians, to powerlifters. Hard work in the gym is not something his clients avoid.

But, they do avoid pain and injury, and Dr. John helps them do that.
