Dr. Flynn’s Mailbag: On ‘body men’ and medical staffs, Hightower and ACLs

(Stew Milne/USA TODAY Sports)

Hi everyone, hope you enjoyed the first snow and are ready for what I hope will be a great Patriots-Steelers match-up this weekend! Thanks so much for the great questions this week. If you didn’t get to contribute this week, no worries! I’d love to hear from you for future editions, so make sure you check out the contact information at the bottom of the page.

Your questions were focused on the Patriots this week - Alex Guerrero’s relationship with the Patriots, Dont'a Hightower is “ahead of schedule,” and how will Julian Edelman look when he returns next season. Here we go…

Doc, How does med community view interference from personal trainers (ie Alex Guerrero)? Do you feel the benefits of such relationships are more psychological than physical?
