Information about the Sports Medicine Store



Most of us don't see ourselves as athletes, when the fact of the matter is, we are.

The word, "athlete", conjures up images of our favorite sports star hitting a home run, scoring a goal or running for a touchdown.

Since we usually see these people on television on a lazy Sunday afternoon while we are sitting in our easy chair eating greasy food, we don't place ourselves in the same category as they are in.

An athlete is simply a person who uses specific muscles to perform specific activities.

Why is an office worker using her hand and forearm muscles to type for eight hours a day different from a tennis player using her hand and forearm muscles to swing a racket?

Both can suffer from overuse problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tennis elbow.

It may surprise you to learn that nearly all the tennis elbow cases we see are the result of overuse due to the low load, high frequency exercises performed by people who have a desk job.

Very rarely do we see an actual tennis player with tennis elbow.

Most of the injuries sustained by people in professional sports are the same injuries sustained by the rest of us.

Certified athletic trainers are the people professional sports teams turn to for the day to day treatment of these injuries.

The Sports Medicine Shop provides the same opportunity to the rest of us.

Sports medicine is the branch of medicine dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and management of activity related injuries and illnesses like panic disorders.

A key component of the sports medicine philosophy is to get you back in action as safely and as quickly as possible.
