am 13 years old, and I have been playing girl's basketball, in different
leagues, for many years now. After breaking my nose more than once during games,
I was thinking about the possibility of not having the sport I absolutely love,
in my life. It really was a distressing time for me. Then I heard about
this custom made "mask" being worn by the pros. I did some research on the
internet and found the man that makes these masks; Jeremy Murray from the
Michigan Hand and Sports Rehab center. My prayers were answered and I am
back in the game!
The mask has become part of me; part of my uniform.
During games, my face really takes a beating and with the mask on, I do not
even blink. I no longer realize the pummeling my face takes because of the
protection that the mask gives me.
The great part is that I did not
have to fly to Michigan to have the mask made. I had my orthopedist,
Dr. Douglas Avella, make a mold of my upper face and I shipped it off to
Mr. Murray. That was it! Done! The mask came back a perfect fit, and I
feel alive again! As corny as it sounds, having this protective face mask
that fits "like a glove" has truly been a gift from above! Thanks Jeremy Murray!!
Newcastle United striker comes to MHSRC
I've worked with patients throughout the US and all over the world, but we recently had an opportunity to work with Newcastle United Football Club to help take care of their injured striker, Shola Ameobi.
Team doctor, Paul Catterson, had this to say after the trip-
"A very professional service was provided by both Jeremy and Shellie. This began with initial phone calls and emails right through to the initial consultation and final production. We were made to feel most welcome from the moment we arrived. We were also very impressed by the speed of production and the attention to detail, clearly Jeremy is a perfectionist and this is reflected in the final product. Most importantly the player feels comfortable with the outcome and now has the required confidence to play at the highest level."
Thanks to Shola, Dr. Catterson, and Newcastle United FC for such an amazing opportunity! Read more and follow Shola's return to the pitch at:
