Hi my name is Gregory Hawthorne, most people refer to me as Greg. I am an Athletic Trainer here at Florida State University and work primarily with the football team. I am beginning a sports medicine blog here on Seminoles.com. Sports medicine is a very broad topic so the blog will cover topics ranging from injuries and rehabilitation to general nutrition. If you have any questions you would like to ask please leave a comment. This blog however will not, I repeat will not discuss specific players or their injuries, sorry.
Here is a little about me I was born in the Greater Pittsburgh Area in Pennsylvania, when to school in the a sweetest place on earth, Hershey, PA. I then went to undergrad at UM, not the orange and green, but the Maize and Blue, the University of Michigan where I received my B.S. in Athletic Training. I went to Michigan State University for graduate school where I received my Master's Degree in Kinesiology. At MSU I learned a great deal about Osteopathic and Manuel Medicine. While attending school I worked with many of the sports teams. I used the knowledge I gained to work for several NFL teams, the Detroit Lions, the Rhein Fire of the now defunct NFL-E, and the Jacksonville Jaguars. I have also worked as a performance enhancement specialist and personal trainer.
I hope this blog will help you understand a little more about sports medicine issues and general wellness leading you to make better health decisions and increase your quality of life. So stay tuned for the first entry....
