If you have provided us with your e-mail address, you will be able to sign-up to have access to your medical history - so please take a few moments to review the information before your appointment. Let us know if your information has changed and if anything needs to be updated.

We welcome your comments and suggestions - so feel free to give us a call.

Cheerleading Injuries


Legend has it that cheerleading started with a University of Minnesota student standing up in the stands and leading his fellow students in “cheering” for their team during a football game.

In 2002, there were an estimated 3.5 million people in the U.S. participating as cheerleaders, from as young as six-years-old to those who cheerlead for professional athletic teams. While cheerleading is meant to support an athletic team, its intense competitions at the high school and collegiate levels have created a whole new dynamic, including increased risk for injury.
