Are You Ready for Some Football?

The outdoor community pools are closed, and summer is formally over. And at this time of year, football fans are wearing their team jerseys and flying their banners.

Today Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, is sharing information regarding the most common football injuries he treats.
