It’s raining GOLD, SILVER, and BRONZE for US Athletes, topping the charts with 25 medals (12 gold, 8 silver, 5 bronze) at the 13th IAAF 2011 World Championships in Daegu, South Korea.
A very special congratulations goes out to our All Back & Joint Care US Athletes, Carmelita Jeter, Bianca Knight, Jason Richardson, Lashinda Demus, and Jesse Williams. Additionally we salute our international athletes, Felix Sanchez (Dominican Republic) , and Jaysuma Saidy Ndure (Norway).
Jeter came home with one silver and two gold medals, sharing a gold with Knight for their valiant team effort in the women’s 4 × 100 meter relay. This win set a season world record at a speed of 41.56. Click here to listen to Carmelita Jeter’s Adidas interview after the race.
Gold medals were also awarded to Richardson (110 meters hurdles/ 13.16), Williams (High jump/ 2.35) and Demus, who set both a season world record and a national record for the 400 meter hurdles at 52.47.
Sanchez was 7/100ths of a second away from the bronze, landing him a very close 4th place in the men’s 400m hurdles (48.87).
Jaysuma Saidy Ndure also came close to the bronze, placing 4th in the Men’s 200 meters (19.95)
Each of these athletes have received laser therapy treatments and chiropractic services from Drs. Maryann and Michael Sheps. Jeter describes the exceptional results she received with BIOLASE®’s Diolase™10 laser treatments. “In 2010 I suffered from a cyst in my ankle and didn’t know if I would be able to compete the rest of the season. I came to Dr. Sheps 4x’s a week and was back running in 4 weeks. I finished the 2010 season as the #1 sprinter in the world.”
Drs. Maryann and Michael Sheps are thrilled to announce that they will be accompanying these athletes (laser in hand, of course) at the Olympic trials (June 2012, Oregon)
Why were the phone lines lighting up this week at ABJC? Two words – LASER THERAPY. ABJC Co-Founders, Drs. Maryann and Michael Sheps traveled with their BIOLASE’s Diolase 10™ lasers in tow to Mt. SAC’s track meet. Known as California’s biggest track meet, athletes and even trainers lined up to receive laser therapy treatments for various pains. PUMA’s poster girl, Shevon Stoddart, received laser treatments for tendonitis in her knee. She later went on to compete in the Women’s 400m hurdles.
Suffering from a capsular tear in his left ankle, World Champion Surfer, Tanner Gudauskas, was referred to ABJC by his Orthopedic Surgeon. Dr. Sheps ordered a short protocol of BIOLASE Diolase 10™ laser treatments. After only 6 treatments, he resumed full normal activity, with NO residual pain. Gudauskas says, “I would love to thank Dr. Sheps for the care of the laser. My ankle feels incredibly better after each session.”
