Student Athlete Injuries Can Be Curbed Through New Exercise Program


According to new research from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (Rosemont, IL), there were more than 5.2 million student athlete injuries across a four-year period.

Dr. Staten C. Medsker Jr, a chiropractic physician based in Bellevue, WA, better known as “RocknDoc” said there are three big “postural pandemics of our society.”

He explained 67 percent of Americans have “computer neck” from slouching over electronics, 74 percent have a “flat butt” from sitting in school or at desk jobs, and 97 percent have “short legs” resulting from untreated falls.

“High school sports programs oftentimes hammer the bent nail, making these postural imbalances even more susceptible to strain and injury,” Medsker said.

Medsker released a book and an exercise program titled Posture ReS.E.T Program that addresses these three specific issues in a way that is simple, personalized and effective. It also takes just five minutes, he said.

The program considers several aspects including exercises done in a circular fashion (muscles, arms and legs are round), a unilateral system to restore equilibrium (“everybody is out of balance”) and exercising in the same direction (correcting imbalances at 5 mm per month), according to Medsker.

“This program isn’t for aches and pains and toothaches. It’s the structural correction like braces on teeth, to do at home so you can avoid spending $800 a month at the [chiropractor, physical therapy or doctor’s] office,” Medsker said. “The creation of the Posture ReS.E.T Program is the equivalent of finding the cure for the common cold or cancer. It’s going to change the world and the way we think about exercise!”
