Boston Globe, February 4, 2008
Professional athletes are often at the forefront of sports medicine, presenting injuries and special circumstances that can require medical professionals to develop better techniques, new instruments, and accelerated rehabilitation plans. A symbiotic relationship exists between sports medicine professionals (orthopedic surgeons, trainers, physical therapists) and athletes, each pushing the other toward new discoveries about how the body performs and heals best. With sports medicine advancements, the more necessary for success it becomes for professional teams to have forward-looking medical service dedicated to innovative, all-around care.
