The TriDoc Podcast Episode 7: Can training make you sick?-Dr. Brian White on FAI-RFW

There are many reasons to train and race but one major one is for the health benefits. However, can hard training or racing actually contribute to making you sick? I look at the evidence behind prolonged intense exertion, immune suppression and the likelihood of getting sick. Dr. Brian White a Denver area orthopedic surgeon and specialist in hip labral reconstruction is here to discuss the femoroacetabular impingement syndrome; what it is, what it can do and what can be done about labral tears if they occur. Finally, it's the last episode of Reels for Wheels of the 2018-19 season. Janetta Iwanicki joins me for a discussion of our recommendations of films to recover by.
