Coaches Can Shape Young Athletes' Definition of Success
from Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Careful Diagnosis Helps Fracture Patients Put Best Foot Forward
from Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Located in areas of the foot that can be hard to visualize with X-rays and other imaging techniques, injuries to the ankle area of the foot are the most frequently misdiagnosed of all foot fractures. Delayed diagnosis can have serious consequences, sometimes leading to permanent disability. A new review article published in the December 2009 issue of The Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons shows that a detailed description of the injury, recognition of subtle diagnostic imaging clues, and targeted physical exam can help avoid long-term injuries and disabilities that may occur as a result of these uncommon fractures.

Contracted Athletic Trainer Keeps Athletes Going
from The Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Two Rivers, Wis., student athletes are injured, the spectrum of services available to help them can come from one company now. The school district had been contracting with Physiotherapy Associates for the services of an athletic trainer. Fall semester was under way when athletic director Matt La Tour received a letter informing him the local office was closing. With that door closed, the district began a partnership with Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine in Green Bay, Wis. Through that contract, Melissa Pearson has come on board to work with Two Rivers students. More

We have made a few key changes to an already sound design. Easier to apply, improved adjustability, positive control, less pressure on the arm. MORE
