Even for the non-athletes, sports medicine is an excellent resource for the individual who wishes to become active or begin an exercise program. For the “weekend warrior” or “industrial athlete” who experiences an injury, the same expertise used for the competitive athlete can be applied to return the individual as quickly as possible to full function.

What is cupping therapy?
Cupping Therapy is a specific set of movements that Dr. Menner and Dr. Broering use in different combinations to quickly facilitate elimination of debris and release of rigid soft tissues. This therapy, like massage, creates space and separation in the tissues that allows the doctor to work more effectively and comfortably on his patients. Almost every area of the body responds to this unique treatment.
How does the Bodyblade® Work?
The key to Bodyblade® is the rapid contraction technology which automatically contracts your muscles up to 270 times a minute. With over 600 muscles in your body, Bodyblade® automatically contracts the right muscles at the right time, every moment you’re exercising for a fast, effective and intelligent workout. The harder you drive the blade back and forth, the greater the flex, and the more resistance you receive resulting in a strong, reactive and stable body.
How does athletic tape work?
Athletic tape is a revolutionary sports medicine solution for treating and preventing common sports injuries such as ITBS, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, knee pain and more. Ultra-light, elastic, and strong, athletic tape is highly effective at providing pain relief, stability & support, & faster recovery for injured or sore muscles and joints-without sacrificing comfort or freedom of movement.
How can a VOODOO Floss Band help?
The Voodoo Floss Band is an essential performance tool and should be a staple in the gym bag of every athlete looking to improve range, restore joint mechanics, or unglue matted down or previously injured tissue. Compression tack and flossing (Voodoo Flossing) works on many levels; including re-perfusing tissues that have become stiff or gone cold after injury, and by compressing swelling out of tissues and joints. Because the Voodoo band can be used while performing the movement the athlete is trying to change, its effect on sliding surface and restoration and tissue mobilization is unmatched.
