Grand Rounds Likes Our New Achilles Tendon Stretch

"A pint of sweat saves a gallon of blood."
- General George S. Patton
Each week, a hard-working person does the sweat-work of collecting medical posts from wide-ranging areas like administration, research, patients, chaplains, medical, and nursing practice to produce Grand Rounds.

Thank you to Rita Schwab, CPCS, CPMSM, for recommending the Fitness Fixer post Better Achilles Tendon Stretch at the MSSP Nexus Blog Grand Rounds this week, reminding people there is a better way to stretch your Achilles than the common "lunge and lean."
