The Future of Sports Injury Rehabilitation
Stack
Can you heal a torn hamstring in two weeks instead of six, come back from a ligament sprain in half the time or even return from a severe knee injury without surgery? The answer might be locked in your blood. In the past five years, a seismic change has occurred in sports medicine as radically new non-operative solutions to difficult problems have emerged.

But it is the brain that costs NHL players, costs the league and insurance companies and, for that matter, costs everyone involved in future earnings in everything from contracts that injured players will never sign to endorsements they will never receive.

While this phrase sounds humorous and light-hearted, over the years head injuries in sports that involve grueling physical interactions have raised red flags of caution and concern.
