We are stepping up to the plate and forming a strategic partnership with Slammers, LLC.
Between partnerships from youth, high school, collegiate, and professional ranks, IBJI has become an industry leader in the Sports Medicine baseball community. Slammers, LLC has been a key partner in helping build that success since 2009. They are the premier baseball training academy in the Northern Chicagoland region, with deep roots in the community, and a strong brand presence led by their industry experience.
IBJI supports Slammers athletes and their families through a number of service lines that focus on timely access to quality care. Highlighted by a group of seven fellowship trained sports medicine physicians in the north suburbs, IBJI also provides complimentary injury screens at all physical therapy locations, and offers on-site strength and condition services inclusive of a Slammers membership.
“There are many nuances that need to be taken into consideration when treating the baseball athlete. It’s critical to connect athletes with experts that can correctly diagnose, treat, and provide appropriate return to play strategies for overhead athletes. The marriage between Slammers and IBJI promotes a synergy in baseball skills, and optimal human performance,” says Matt Repa, IBJI Director of Sports Medicine.
“To be able to call Illinois Bone and Joint Institute our official sports medicine partner is an honor. We always strive to surround our players with first class people, so growing our partnership with IBJI doctors, performance staff and physical therapists is a no brainer,” says Ed Tolzien, Slammers, General Manager.
