azredCowboy Lifestyle Network greatly appreciates Justin Boots Sports Medicine Team and all they do for cowboys and cowgirls participating in rodeos across the nation. CLN enjoys spending time with the Justin Sports Medicine Team, because everyone working on the team is by far some of the most caring, fun, and all around-nice people on the rodeo grounds. Certainly every single participant competing in these events are undeniably grateful for the Justin Boots Sports Medicine Program, specifically because when an injury occurs during the rodeo the Sports Medicine Team is there ready to attend to these brave individuals without hesitation. And to top it all off, through the kindness of their hearts, this remarkable team does all of this for free. As a result, they do all of this for the “cowboy” so they will in return buy Justin Boots to help.

The mindset here is that if you are going to participate in the rodeo, at some point, you are going to get hurt in some way or another, whether it is a minor or serious injury. Thus, the Justin Sports Medicine Team and the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund give these participating cowboys and cowgirls the assurance that Justin’s Sports Medicine Team is on the spot always ready to attend to any situation with responsive medical aid and ambulances nearby if a trip to the hospital is needed. Justin Boots Sport Medicine Healer has 14 staff members that cover approximately 125 rodeos, which is about 600 performances all together. Also, these full-time employees are geographically located based on the rodeos they travel to with a fully equipped mobile unit and specialized medical team to treat, rehabilitate, or prevent injury for these brave contestants.
Meanwhile, Justin Mobile Sports Medicine Team gets local support from hospitals, local doctors, and medical personnel that volunteer to help them for these rodeos. As you may know, rodeos are extremely dangerous and it is impossible to predict what injures may arise. However, there are more regular injures that arise more often than others. For example, shoulder injuries are the most common seen injury, while they see a greater amount of rough stock riders that frequently face more injuries than riders participating in timed events. In addition, injuries appear more toward the end of the year because of the wear and tear on the body due to the nature of this sport. The majority of riders will go online and locate where the Justin Boots Sports Medicine Team will be at and they will finish out the year by getting individual treatment while they are at the rodeo.
