Dr. Mark Galland Releases Video Discussing Injury Prevention

Raleigh, NC, March 31, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Dr. Mark Galland, a physician at Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina (www.orthonc.com/galland.html), has announced the release of a video demonstrating the buddy taping method. In the video, Jen Hall, ATC/LAT at Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina, instructs the United Volleyball 15 girls’ team on this injury prevention technique. Buddy taping refers to the taping together of two fingers below each knuckle, and is an effective technique that allows for the protection of fingers while providing freedom of motion for competing athletes.

“I hope that not only my patients, but all local athletes, will gain something from the buddy taping demonstration video,” said Dr. Galland. “Small preventative measures like this are so important for athletic injury prevention.”
