Baltimore Orioles Ahead of Curve in Injury Prevention
We are happy to see the Baltimore Orioles’ recovery program incorporating new technologies, such as the Marc Pro, to keep their players injury free. The team discusses the importance of recovery for the long season ahead.
Among the newer modalities used by the Orioles are laser therapy and the Marc Pro device, which is used by about 80 percent of Major League teams. The Marc Pro unit, which uses electric stimulation pads, enhances recovery through the lymphatic system, allowing fresh blood and nutrients to reach the desired area. It’s also portable, meaning the O’s can give it to reliever Ryan Webb after he tweaks his knee or to shortstop J.J. Hardy (shoulder strain) for overnight treatment to speed the healing.
