Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is the field of medicine concerned with physical fitness and the diagnosis and treatment of both acute and chronic injuries sustained during training and competition.

A key element of sports-medicine management is the use of braces and supports to prevent and treat various injuries. These devices support and enhance the quality of activity for both recreational and elite athletes.

Michael did an outstanding job on showing us how to use brace! He did not leave until we were well versed in the use of the brace and the strapping system and velcro straps. He was very clear on the benefits and use of the brace. My doctor believes your system is very helpful to all who use it.
