Robert Killebrew making a tackle for the Texas Longhorns.

As a punishing linebacker for the Texas Longhorns, Robert Killebrew delivered pain. Nowadays, however, as a physical therapist he's all about relieving it.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, Robert shares his journey from being a kid who didn't even play football to playing in the most football-crazed state in the union. He also speaks about having his dreams of a pro career dashed to becoming a movement expert and a healer.

He offers advice on the best ways to avoid and minimize injury — whatever your ability or activity level. And he adds some advice for a quality life too.
