Dr. Flynn has her own podcast called “Sidelined with Doc Flynn” in which she focuses on injury analysis and how recovery and prevention pertain to specific injuries. Flynn’s insight is routinely used by NFL executives and coaches to discuss draft picks and game planning as it relates to injuries.

Dr. Flynn wanted to correct the narrative by displaying the reality of the injury.
Ever since, Dr. Flynn has been widely respected throughout the league when it comes to injury analysis.
She has more than 15 years of experience as a sports medicine physician and more than five in media commentary and analysis.
