After a long weekend of fishing it’s not uncommon for me to feel 100 years old in the office on Monday morning. A combination of rough boat runs and standing on the front deck trying balance a trolling motor while making a few hundred casts can really take it’s toll on your back, neck, arms and wrists. A few years ago I dealt with severe tendinitis in my shoulders and will never forget the look on the physical therapist face when I tried to tell her it was from fishing. Her mental picture of fishing is somebody sitting on a bucket at the local creek drowning crickets with a cane pole. A lot different than what bass tournament guys and gals have to deal with.
I found a place in North Austin that really knows the stress and strain that fishing, hunting and the outdoors can place on the body.
