Toronto – The Toronto Rock Lacrosse Club is pleased to announce that it has once again chosen Trainers Choice, a leading supplier of orthopaedic braces and supports in Canada, as its official supplier of sports medicine products, as well as a preferred partner for its therapy and rehabilitation program.
“The athletic therapy experts at Trainers Choice play an integral role in providing guidance on how to rehabilitate an injury, as well as which sports medicine product is suited for a specific injury,” says Dave Murray, Toronto Rock’s Head Athletic Therapist. “It’s great to have one reliable source for sports medicine advice and products.” Murray works with team physicians when surgery is required, designing and overseeing the treatment and rehabilitation of players once an injury has been assessed.
During the NLL season, the Toronto Rock players practice once a week with games on most weekends from January to May. Murray says that lacrosse, like hockey, is a fast-paced, high impact sport in which injuries can run the gamut from concussions to severe knee injuries and ankle sprains. Many of the athletes hold down full-time jobs, so when an injury occurs it not only keeps a player out of the line-up, but also has implications at home, school and at work.
“Trainers Choice is thrilled that the Rock will be relying on our expertise and premium products,” says Rick Schaly, President of Trainers Choice. “We design each of our products based on the needs of top-level athletes, but they’re also for people from every walk of life. Regardless of your life stage or profession, when you’re injured you need to recover as quickly and fully as possible to get back to life, work as well as sports.”
As part of this agreement, Trainers Choice will be providing the team with training room materials, medical supplies and a wide range of support products such as wrist and knee braces. When required, local Toronto Rock athletes also utilize Trainers Choice’s sister company, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Centre located in Barrie, Ontario for ongoing medical, athletic and physiotherapy.
