This past weekend Dr. Brown and some of our OIP Employees visited Twin Ponds West to meet with CheerTyme owner, Kim Braasch, and some of their cheer athletes. We were more than happy to provide CheerTyme with a sponsorship, banner, healthy snacks, and MOST of all great ACL injury prevention tips. Dr. Brown held a Q&A session with the kids and was thrilled to answer all of their amazing questions!
