My name is Matthew Villegas. My goal as someone born with a brachial plexus injury (trauma to the bundle of nerves near the shoulder blade and collar bone) is to help others with brachial plexus injuries live life to their fullest and dare to  run and compete in crossfit through my skills as a Physical Therapist. I host the Capable Body Podcast (available on iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher), which aims to bridge the gap between healthcare providers and real people with real stories. Also, the podcast features an active Facebook community that is a safe space where I share more means to connect with my guests as well as some behind-the-scenes extras.
