Welcome from the contributors at the Sports Rehab and Performance Group!

I have seen a couple of stats recently that have really struck me.

“90% of the world’s data has been created in the last 2 years.”

“Every 2 days we create as much data as we did from the dawn of civilization to 2003.”

Who knows if these stats are true (as I have not substantiated them) but the simple fact is…as a society we produce a lot of data!!!

Despite all of this data being created everyday there is no definitive source to help provide adolescent athletes and their parents with the information that they need to guide them through the healthcare process from prevention to injury to return to sport.

Through discussions with clinical associates ranging from sports performance coaches to rehab professionals and medical doctors this blog was born from the simple fact that everyday each one of these professionals is asked questions regarding injury and return to sport.

Upon suffering an injury patients are often left with more questions than answers after a diagnosis and are ushered through the system without really becoming informed and realizing that there is a higher standard of care when it comes to seeking out individuals who can best prepare you for return to sport. There is an upper echelon of fitness, rehab and medical professionals who are constantly reading, attending continuing education and figuring out the best ways to treat and prepare their athletes for return to sport. Not all of these professionals are created equal.

YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE TO SEEK OUT THE BEST!!!

This blog is the creation of some of the top rehab, medical, and performance specialists through all professional organizations to help provide athletes and their parents guidance through all things injury prevention, injury and return to sport. We want to be the go to resource for athletes and their parents to help disseminate the most up to date and relevant information from the mounds of info created daily.

Our Mission Statement is as follows:

It is the goal of the Sports Rehab and Performance Group to create an organization focused on bridging the gap between rehabilitation and sports performance in order to provide athletes and their parents access to up-to-date, cutting edge and research based information in a format that they can understand and appreciate. The blog will only employ the highest quality of experts in the sports performance and rehab fields and will pride itself on being able to disseminate quality information in a way that the masses can interpret to make informed decisions about medical matters involving return to and continued participation in sport.

This blog is here to serve you and we would like to make the site as interactive as possible. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook at:  https://www.facebook.com/SportsRehabAndPerformanceGroup, and on Twitter at @SRPGorg, for all of the latest updates on blog posts and special events.
