IBJI, Local Schools Joining Forces to Protect, Educate Young Athletes about Head Injuries

Posted in What's New, In the News, Community Involvement, Glenview Division on Friday, 02 October 2015

A new law called the Youth Sports Concussion Safety Act took effect this fall. It is designed to better protect students enrolled in Illinois public and private schools who suffer concussions. In the event of a head injury, the law requires that students be evaluated by a physician or licensed athletic trainer. Following such evaluation, students must also get written consent from a physician or from an athletic trainer working under a physician’s supervision before they can return to play or to the classroom. The new law also requires schools to establish concussion oversight teams responsible for implementing return-to-play and return-to-learn protocols and policies.

Illinois Bone & Joint Institute is proud to sponsor the ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run & 3K Walk on June 18, 2015.

For 21 years, the ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run & 3K Walk has proven itself as a landmark event in the Chicagoland area and is a major fundraiser for the Leukemia Research Foundation. Each June, more than 2,500 people gather along Chicago's lakefront to run, walk and raise funds in search of a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and all blood cancers in memory of Jim Gibbons. Jim was a highly-respected 25-year veteran investigative reporter at ABC 7 when he succumbed to leukemia in 1994.

This years' 21st annual celebration will be held in Chicago's Grant Park. Janet Davies and Frank Mathie have been the honorary co-chairs since the event's inceptions and will lead many on-air personalities with event coverage.

IBJI Educates Athletes

Posted in What's New, Community Involvement, Physical & Occupational Therapy on Friday, 27 March 2015

IBJI’s staff is celebrating National Athletic Training Month during March. “We Prepare - You Perfom” is 2015’s slogan for this observance, organized by the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA).

IBJI’s athletic training staff is closely involved in educating athletes of all ages about the importance of being active and staying healthy. Earlier this year, IBJI Rehab hosted its third annual “IBJI Sports Medicine Knowledge Bowl” for students interested in sports medicine careers. The Knowledge Bowl was the brainchild of IBJI’s Annika Safstrom, ATC. Designed to help students learn about careers in sports medicine, the event invites members of high school clubs to participate in a Jeopardy-style competition to show off their knowledge and skills.

IBJI Rehab provides teams with a study guide at the beginning of the school year. The goal is to encourage students’ ambitions about their sports medicine and athletic training studies. Categories in the Knowledge Bowl included evaluation, anatomy and injury prevention.

This year’s winning team hailed from Victor J. Andrew High School in Tinley Park, which took home a $250 grant for the school’s sports medicine student club. Other participating high schools included New Trier, Neuqua Valley, Lyons Township, Wheeling, and Stagg.

IBJI wants to remind everyone this month to get out there and be active. For helpful tips and articles about staying healthy, visit https://www.facebook.com/ibjirehab.

It’s a Team Effort at IBJI/HPI to Help Basketball Star Dominate in the WNBA Playoffs

Posted in What's New, In the News, Community Involvement, Physical & Occupational Therapy on Thursday, 28 August 2014

 

Chicago Sky center Sylvia Fowles

The Chicago Sky won a playoff series for the first time in franchise history on Tuesday night. The Sky staged a 17-point fourth quarter comeback, knocking the top-seeded Atlanta Dream out of the WNBA playoffs.

For the Sky, it’s been a season of ups and downs due to injuries and illness. So the professionals at IBJI’s Health Performance Institute (HPI) have been cheering loudly for Sky center Sylvia Fowles because they played a major role in helping her return to the game she loves.

Fowles, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, had major hip surgery in the off season. She returned to the Chicago area and did most of her post-surgery rehabilitation at HPI, a collaborative care orthopaedic rehabilitation, sports performance and wellness facility.

Five days a week, Fowles was at HPI, frequently working with physical therapist Andrea Staley. Fortunately for Fowles, Staley had been through the same hip surgery. At 6’6”, Fowles is the Sky’s tallest player. She towers over Staley, who is just 5’3,” but that wasn’t a problem for the two. “Andrea is little, but she packs a lot of power,” says Fowles. At HPI, Fowles also worked closely with physical therapist Paul Schmidt and massage therapist Puja Halvadia.

Fowles, who was named the WNBA’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2013, was determined not to miss the entire 2014 season. Initial reports were that she would return to the basketball court in four to six months. Thanks in part to her intensive rehabilitation work with her team at HPI, Fowles was back on the court in just over three months.

During her rehabilitation, Fowles also took advantage of some of the super high-tech equipment available at HPI, like the AlterG treadmill. The AlterG reduces gravity’s impact on the body by “unweighting” patients, allowing them to rehab and train without subjecting their bodies to the pounding on joints that a regular workout would entail. “The AlterG is awesome,” says Fowles. “It’s like walking and running on air.”

Fowles is back in top form and has been putting up big numbers for the Sky. In Tuesday’s contest, she added 13 points and a game-high 15 rebounds. She gives her HPI team a lot of the credit for helping her return to play much earlier than expected. “They helped me get back so much faster than anyone expected,” says Fowles. “It’s so great to be back out on the floor with the other girls instead of watching from the sidelines,” according to Fowles. Fowles and the Sky will open the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday against the Indiana Fever. Go Sky!
