CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- NFL players are no strangers to pain.
That's where Dr. Jon-David Hoppenfeld comes in handy. Dr. Hoppenfeld has joined the medical staff for the Carolina Panthers to provide his medical expertise to the team under head team physician, Patrick Connor.
"I am humbled to be taking care of the most elite athletes in the world," stated Dr. Hoppenfeld. While just beginning his medical career with the NFL, he is no stranger to sports medicine and pain management. Dr. Hoppenfeld also serves as a medical advisor for Golf Digest and has provided lectures on back pain and the golf swing.
With over 10 years of pain management experience, Dr. Hoppenfeld became the medical director of Southeast Pain & Spine Care - one of the country's largest pain groups, at only 38 years of age.
