February 24th, 2016 - Lubbock Sports Medicine is proud to offer continuing education for our athletic trainers on the South Plains via our monthly academic sessions. Stan Kotara, PA-C and Mendy Wyatt ATC/LAT worked in unison to initiate these learning opportunities for the healthcare professionals that care for your student-athletes at the high school and university levels. This past week, our Kerry Wimberley ATC/LAT from Lubbock Sports Rehab led a group through a comprehensive assessment of the throwing shoulder then delved into rehabilitation techniques for our overhead athletes (softball, volleyball, baseball & tennis). With the Spring sport seasons in full swing, this presentation was provided at the perfect time to bolster the knowledge of athletic trainers for possible injuries our athletes will face this time of year. Be sure to reach out to us at Lubbock Sports Medicine/Rehab for all your orthopedic needs this Spring and good luck to all those student-athletes on the court and diamonds!
