Injury Treatment & Prevention Videos

The Sock Doc Videos offer a unique approach to injury treatment and prevention. Each video discusses common injuries athletes are either diagnosed with or areas where many often suffer weakness and pain. The videos will teach you how to assess the true cause of your injury rather than treat the symptoms as so many do (unsuccessfully). You'll also learn how to help prevent your current injury from reoccurring, as well as other injuries that are often related, before they occur.
