Athlete 360: New Television Show on Sports Medicine


Television show on sports medicine for physical therapistsHere in America sport is our passion. We idolize different men and women from all sports and tend to know more about them than our friends and family. Now you can learn a little bit more about them than ever before, thanks to a new television show that is all about sports medicine and showcases different athletes from NASCAR to the PGA. Here’s what the production company, Serious Fun Productions says about their new TV show…

We’re American sports fans. We’re two-parts passion and one-part religion. We live and breathe sports. And now that our athletic heroes have become part of our everyday life, we want to know them, inside and out.

Now, we can. Literally. Dr. Mark Adickes, a Super Bowl-winning NFL offensive lineman turned Harvard-educated orthopedic surgeon is our host. And with his expert help (and state-of-the-art scanning and MRI technology), Athlete 360 gives us a window into our heroes’ past – letting us see the physical effect of their awe-inspiring careers… and the physical toll those acts of heroism exacted.

But this is not just a voyeuristic look at blown ACL’s and Tommy John surgeries. It’s a chance to see how the sports we love have changed, a chance to better understand what today’s athletes go through, and importantly, how to protect our kids from future injuries as they compete.

Dr. Adickes will explain how surgery techniques have improved, interview past and current elite athletes about their bodies, and give weekend warriors and parents alike a true inside look at sports.

So if there happens to be a time on your travel therapy assignment in which you find yourself with nothing to do… You now have an alternative.


About the Author

Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I’ve been involved with Marketing and Advertising for the better part of a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she’s ever had. So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. Obviously, I landed the job at Medical Solutions, a travel physical therapy company and am now a Marketing Specialist who writes about travel physical therapy. This by far has been a major blessing to my life, I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time, as long as they’ll have me. Now that we’ve got the career timeline out of the way. Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I’ve been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn’t at least kick the ball around, I don’t know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts. Music, Visual arts, Film, Design; pretty much anything and everything arty. I’m happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager!
