Roll 'Em!

I love it!

More and more information that used to be available only on VCR tapes or DVDs is now being streamed via the internet.

Research has shown that the risk of repeat ankle injuries can be decreased by taping or wearing an ankle brace. Similar support can be given to other injured joints that can help reduce pain and increase function.

A recent Web Alert from the American College of Sports Medicine let me know about a nice resource online that can give health care providers a refresher course on taping joints.

It's available through Mueller Sports Medicine, a company that supplies taping materials, braces and other protective devices for use by athletes.

It's a nice review for athletic trainers, therapists and other people who frequently tape up athletes, featuring Mueller products.

Like the disclaimer on the video says - "The information contained in this program.....should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment of a medical condition".
