We would also like to recognize the volunteer work of Dr. Joshua Eldridge. He was at the meet full time, helping out the athletes, and we wanted to send him a big thank you, and let him say a few words as well:
Dr. Joshua Eldridge was incredibly honored to be able to volunteer his time working with the athletes at the USAG Region 2 Championships. Dr. Eldridge works with gymnasts on a daily basis providing injury care and injury prevention.
Dr. Eldridge would love to come to your gym and teach your families, athletes, and coaches about nutrition, recovery, landing and jumping technique, or treatment of gymnastics related injuries. You can contact him by phone at 425-260-0991, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, Facebook at facebook.com/gymnastcare, or on his site dedicated to protecting gymnasts from injury, gymnastcare.com.
Dr. Eldridge is the inventor of The X Brace, and speaks nationally on nutrition for gymnasts, landing technique, and injury prevention for gymnasts. He has participated in care of our Olympic Athletes at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO and is a member of the USA Gymnastics’ National Health Care and Sports Science Referral Network. Dr. Eldridge’s case study on heel pain in gymnasts has also been published by the ACBSP and he will be presenting this paper at the Olympic Training Center in April 2013.
Dr. Eldridge will be speaking at the 2013 USA Gymnastics National Congress in Hartford, CT on “Taping for Champions” and “Jumping and Landing Technique.”
What a fantastic meet!
We hope you all had a great time at the meet, and congratulations to all the gymnasts, you all looked amazing!
