Toronto Rock Selects Trainer's Choice as Official Supplier of Sports Medicine Products


    Professional lacrosse players rely on Trainer's Choice products to get on
    with work, life and sports

    TORONTO, Feb. 26 /CNW/ - The Toronto Rock Lacrosse Club announced it has
selected Trainer's Choice as its official supplier of sports medicine
products, as well as a preferred partner for its therapy and rehabilitation
program.
    Trainer's Choice is the largest sports medicine product supplier in
Canada, providing the team with training room materials, medical supplies and
a wide range of support products such as wrist and knee braces. Rock athletes
also travel to Sports Medicine in Barrie, a branch of Trainer's Choice for
ongoing athletic and physiotherapy when required.
    "The athletic therapy experts at Trainer's 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 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. 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. Many of the athletes also 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.
    "Trainer's Choice is thrilled that the Rock will be relying on our
expertise and products," says Rick Schaly, President of Trainer's 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. Because regardless of your
profession, when you're injured you need to recover as quickly and fully as
possible and get on with life, work as well as sport."
