January 4, 2013
iCHOR Sports Medicine, in Temecula is extending the efforts of the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center and offering credentialed riders who log a hard fall or are referred by the AMMC staff, limited use of their training room. 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series athletes will be allowed up to six visits at no charge, by appointment only.
Each week, Eddie Casillas, head Athletic Trainer for the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center receives calls asking for advice on injury management and how to face the issues unique to a professional racing schedule. This exclusive iCHOR offer will follow the rider from event injury, answer questions, and offer them the best opportunity to maintain their level of fitness and health while undergoing therapy for their injury.
“I am glad we have been able to make this program available for Supercross 2013. It will fill the void that exists within our community.
