"It's an honor to be named team physicians for one of the foremost athletic training centers in the country," says Dr. Nikhil Verma, MOR sports medicine physician and Director of the Division of Sports Medicine program at Rush University Medical Center.
We are excited to join forces with BJES coaches and trainers to help educate athletes about the importance of proper biomechanics, injury prevention and good orthopedic health so they can perform at their best.
"The team at Bo Jackson's Elite Sports is very excited about our new partnership with Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, an orthopedic group that provides treatment for pro-sports teams, such as the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Fire Soccer Club," says BJES President Jim Thompson. "Our goal at BJES is to provide the best resources to our athletes and their families. This partnership will give our athletes the opportunity to be treated by one of the nation's top orthopedic groups, as well as access to MOR's groundbreaking research and educational resources to help athletes develop a healthier approach to staying competitive."
