Feature Article - The Power Of Video

I have always thought that showing someone is the best way to teach. Pictures and words work, but actually seeing someone perform something makes a huge difference. I take this to heart when I teach my classes. And when I am instructing students in the clinical setting.

I wanted to be able to give great information to all of my web visitors...I wanted something more than just words and pictures.

I thought about all of the things that I could make a video of on the website. To strengthen the quality of the information I provide. Anatomy seemed the first and most logical area to expand into video.

I enlisted the help of my brother, a budding videographer, and together we put together the Video Anatomy Tours.

Since I can't invite you into my clinic to show you the anatomy of the body, web video is the next best thing.

I invite you to come take a look at the Video Anatomy Tour. Four videos now live on the website will take you through a no nonsense tour of the ankle, elbow, knee, and shoulder. Just what you need to know about sports injury anatomy.

I have plans for future videos, and need your comments and suggestions as to what would be most helpful in your quest for sports injury information. Use the contact form on the website and let me know what you would like to see on Sports Injury Info.

Coming Soon To SII

New pages on sports injuries, including elbow and shoulder injuries, as well as prevention techniques.

I have also noticed that the sports injury treatment section is just a little lacking. So, additions to that section is in the near future as well. With all of these plans, I hope I can keep up.

If you have something specific that you would like to see on SII, please let me know. I would love to have your suggestions for future pages.

Share Your Sports Injury Story

Sports injuries are filled with frustrations and questions. Sometimes, just hearing about how someone else dealt with the same problem you have makes things seem a little less scary. I am working on creating a webpage dedicated to my visitors sports injury experiences. I would love it if you would help.

If you have suffered from a sports injury - from ACL tears to sprained ankles - share your story with all of the visitors at SII. Tell us about your worries, your experiences, and how you dealt with your sports injury. Help brighten others day by sharing your experiences. Please share your story now!

Until Next Time,

Stay off the Sidelines!
