HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 06, 2013) - Methodist Willowbrook Hospital hosts an open house event for the Methodist Center for Sports Medicine with a Houston Dynamo Meet & Greet at its Willowbrook Campus Thursday, March 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The center is located at 13802 Centerfield Drive.
The Houston Dynamo, cheerleaders and Mascot, Diesel, will be on hand -- kicking off the opening of the new sports medicine center, along with the Willowbrook Primary Care Sports Medicine (PCSM) team. The community is invited to join the teams for refreshments, giveaways, autographs and activities.
The event begins in the parking lot and includes a tour of the center and new state-of-the-art Methodist Human Performance Lab, which helps athletes like the Houston Dynamo create a performance training strategy.
Talk with the senior exercise physiologist, Mark Morrison, and Primary Care Sports Medicine Specialists Scott Rand MD, Gregory Seelhoefer MD, and Christian Schupp MD, who help professional, collegiate and amateur athletes alike reach performance goals.
The PCSM team will reveal the human performance lab equipment used in VO2 max, lactate threshold and metabolic testing -- and discuss how they work together with the orthopedic specialists and rehabilitation therapists to help patients overcome injuries.
The team will also discuss the benefits of the human performance lab for the overweight population -- and their sports medicine approach to weight loss.
The Methodist Center for Sports Medicine is part of Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, which includes orthopedic specialists Plinio Caldera MD, Travis Hanson MD, Korsh Jafarnia MD, Bruce Moseley MD and John Seaberg, MD and the certified athletic trainers and rehabilitation specialists -- providing comprehensive health resources in a single facility.
