Dr. James Andrews, a pioneer in orthopedics and sports medicine, describes athletic trainers as the “glue that holds that team approach together.” Dr. Andrews has operated on Drew Brees, Sam Bradford, Troy Aikman, Yu Darvish and Michael Jordan to name a few.

Thank you to one of the Event Sponsors of the Rising Eagle Golf Tournament, Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center. We're exactly 1 WEEK away! Registration is still open!
Something really special happened yesterday.
It hasn't received a lot of national attention, but perhaps it will now.
The story was brought to me by Joshua McGrew of Gulf Breeze, Florida.

Yesterday was another busy day at Oriole Beach Elementary School in Gulf Breeze.
School principal Joshua McGrew smiled as he watched the students.
800 kids in grades Pre-K through 5 were excited and fidgety, even more so when the young man walked into the school.
The students cheered as former Bama receiver John Metchie III smiled back.

Yes, none other than John Metchie III arrived at the school for what would be a busy day.
The star out of Bama read books to several classes, gave motivational speeches to hundreds kids, even appeared on the school's closed circuit TV to give life advice to kids ages 4 through 10.

John Metchie III has been rehabbing his knee at Andrews Sports Medicine in the Pensacola area before the NFL Draft, but between rehab sessions, John wanted to give back.
John even had a chance to do the Crimson Crane with the kids, something that he and fellow Bama teammate Jameson Williams invented.

John Metchie III knows what it's like to attend numerous schools, as his family moved to locations all over the world when he was a child.
He also knows that hard work will help the knee he injured while at Bama get back to one hundred percent.

Yes, it sure was a special moment for 800 kids at Oriole Beach Elementary School.

It was great to see John give back.

And it was a visit those kids will never forget.

*Thanks to Joshua McGrew for the pictures.

DOES NOT TAKE CARE OF THE MILITARY. Andrews Orthopedic group in Birmingham was Highly recommended by the parents on Univ. Alabama page. My daughter broke her ankle in ROTC training on Wednesday. She has excellent private insurance but we have to go through workman's comp and then the private insurance as a secondary. Andrews Orthopedic group will not take workman's comp for those who serve in the military. I understand they do not participate with the workman's comp insurance but they have the option to put the claim through, receive a denial and have my private insurance pay for the bill. According to the office staff, Andrews Orthopedics staff does not want the hassle of dealing with workman's comp for the United States Military, this is the owner's policy and the Birmingham office is a privately owned group. I live in NJ and I am struggling to obtain good orthopedic care for my daughter. I was informed that she needed surgery by an orthopedic group that is not as highly recommended as Andrews Clinic. It is very sad that Andrews Clinic in Birmingham does not make military workman's comp a priority, my daughter is in ROTC because she wants to serve our country when she is out of college. She has not had the opportunity to serve yet and the medical system is already failing my daughter. Why do the people who want to sacrifice so much for our freedom receive less than optimum care?

Gisela Westkerkamp is our most experienced athletic trainer at Andrews Sports Medicine. While serving as a graduate assistant at Troy University nearly 20 years ago, Dr. Jeff Dugas invited Gisela to join his clinical team in Birmingham, AL. Gisela served alongside Dr. Dugas for many years and has worked with other Andrews’ surgeons and non-surgical physicians the last two decades. Today, Gisela currently serves as an athletic trainer for Dr. Jeffrey Davis.

We asked Gisela what she likes most about an athletic training career and she stated: “Being an athletic trainer has allowed me the opportunity to work in a variety of settings such as collegiate, high school and clinical setting with the Andrews Sports Medicine doctors. I enjoy being a part of the sports medicine family and love helping people return back to activity.”

This week's Comeback Story comes from Meg Gore: "At the beginning of the pandemic, Spring 2020, the marathon that I had signed up for Fall 2020 was cancelled. I decided to do what any rational runner would do, and train harder, faster, and longer than ever so that when races returned I would be ready to crush them all. It didn’t work out that way. By late July/early August, I was having quite a bit of hamstring tightness and hip pain during my training runs. By the time Fall came and the weather was relenting and races were starting to be held again, I was out of commission with what turned out to be a hip labral tear and impingement. I was having so much pain in my right hip that I couldn't…"

This week's comes from Gabby Sprang: "In the Fall of 2019, I was a softball pitcher in my junior year at Oklahoma State University. I began experiencing numbness and tingling in my left elbow. Also, I could not grip the softball. My arm had been swollen for a couple of weeks and so I decided to get it evaluated by my athletic trainer. He said that I had a stress fracture in my ulna and recommended I take time off from softball for 6 weeks.

I had gone home to Minnesota for the Christmas break and my elbow had not improved. I made an appointment to get a second opinion. I had a MRI and the results showed that my ulnar nerve was displaced and impaired as well as the UCL was torn…"

I was told at the time of diagnosis that when it got to where the pain was sufficient, I would most likely need a hip replacement. For about 15 years I just lived with the pain and the limited range of motion issues. I was thinking the longer I can endure…"

After months of training, our practice is so incredibly proud of our Physician Assistant teammates who were inspired to participate in today’s Mercedes Marathon Relay in honor of the memory of Jeremy Moujoodi.

Jeremy was a physician assistant with our practice and worked alongside Dr. David Moore and his team for two years. On July 29, 2021, Jeremy passed away suddenly, at the age of 33, after returning home from an early morning run.

There were many friends and family members behind the scenes making sure today was a special day for all involved.

It was extra special to have our Andrews doctors and fellows at the finish line providing medical event coverage for all participants.
