Jason Fond has a lifelong love of sports. In his youth, he was active in a number of athletic programs and he credits the injuries he received while playing as part of the reason he chose to pursue a career in sports medicine.
Jason Fond, like many people, enjoys sports for a variety of reasons. One of the most common benefits to playing sports, especially team sports, is that it helps to foster a sense of community. Every sports fan can relate to the thrill of seeing their team pull off a big win or the disappointment of a close lose.
For those who have played sports before, this sense of community goes even deeper. When you and your teammates manage to pull off a big win it will naturally bring you closer together. Even the shared disappointment of a defeat can help forge bonds between teammates because each player will work harder so that they don’t disappoint their friends in the future.
However, this commitment can become a bit of a problem for injured athletes as they might be tempted to put their health at risk in order to get back to their teammates. Jason Fond’s history in sports helps him relate to this mindset and he uses his experience to help his patients realize that the best way to help their teammates is to help themselves.
When he was younger, Jason Fond was an accomplished athlete who was active on many sports teams. Despite some of the injuries he suffered, he still maintains a love for sports and is grateful that his current career allows him to help others recover from their injuries so they can get back in the game sooner.
