     Limping through life after football -- and how doctors can help
    In 2008, I attended a reunion for Miami Dolphins players who had played in the 1983 or 1985 Super Bowls. I was eager to go. It had been 25 years since I took off my pads and helmet for the last time, and since then, I'd had little contact with most of...
