SportsEdTV has added to its strong list of brain injury and concussion contributors by appointing Kristinn Heinrichs the only dual board certified physical therapist and athletic trainer in the United State to its blue ribbon group of concussion contributors.

“We made a commitment to offer information and reports of progress in the field of brain injury and concussion which has so intensely affected many athletes, and Kristinn’s addition to our contributor team takes that commitment to another level,” said Robert Mazzucchelli, Co-Founder, and Chairman, SportsEdTV.

Dr. Heinrichs’ Ph.D. and MeD were awarded by The Raven Honor Society.  She earned a degree in Exercise Physiology at The University of Virginia's School of Sports Medicine and a BSPT from Marquette University.

“When I learned of her role in providing integrative rehabilitation to more than 8,000 soldiers with brain injuries and complex trauma, it became very clear that our audiences would benefit greatly from the wisdom she can share,” added Victor Bergonzoli, CEO of SportsEdTV.

During her career, Dr. Heinrichs has been a contract physical therapist at US Army Health Center, Vicenza, Italy, where, as a dual board certified neuro-orthopedic physical therapist, she delivers integrative rehabilitation services in an interprofessional traumatic brain injury team. She has also been the sole proprietor of Peak Sports Performance International since 1988.

About SportsEdTV: SportsEdTV exists to help athletes, coaches and parents LEARN, WIN, and CELEBRATE. We don't expect everyone who uses our learning tools to become a world champion - that's not our mission. 

We do expect people who use our educational resources to become their champion, by whatever definition they view success in their chosen sport. For some, success is making the varsity team, for others, it’s becoming country champion, and for others still, it may simply be gaining proficiency at a sport that offers a lifetime of fun and fitness. “

To us, no matter your aspirations in sport, if you are striving to improve, you are winning! As a leading sports education media company, we provide FREE video and blog content to anyone in the world with an internet connection. 

We also offer a global online community, where athletes, parents, and coaches can interact, connect, chat, share content and find new friends. SportsEdTV videos feature coaching from world-class coaches and athletes - many of whom are or have coached world champions - and have been watched by viewers in every country in the world.
