In The Debut Episode Of Our New Ask-The-Expert Podcast, We Talk Arm Safety And Injury Prevention With Dr. Charles Preston •
For the show’s first episode, one of the East Bay’s most renowned sports medicine practitioners as Dr. Charles Preston joins the show.
Dr. Preston is the head team physician for Walnut Creek’s NBA G League team, Ignite, as well as an assistant team physician at Saint Mary’s College and the sideline physician for De La Salle High School football. Before settling in the Bay Area, he was also a house physician for the New York Mets — and it’s his baseball medicine acumen that we sought out for this episode.

With baseball back in full swing, we wanted to make our first episode about arm safety. What are the most common injuries Dr. Preston sees in patients aged 12-18? What are the best preventative steps to avoid those injuries? Are there myths or old adages surrounding arm care that don’t hold up anymore? And what is the doc’s favorite piece of advice for young athletes participating in “overhead sports” (baseball, volleyball, swimming)?
