Louisville Orthopedic Provides Answers to Common Questions about Tennis Injuries and Tennis Elbow
With a personal passion for the game of tennis, Dr. Grossfeld has enjoyed offering sports injury prevention seminars focused on preventing tennis injuries. This includes things like tips to build core strength and suggestions for becoming a more competitive tennis player.
