Built In Sport


Your body is made to move. Run and jump. Twist and turn. You push your body to new limits to outperform the competition. And sometimes that hurts.

A sports injury becomes a life injury. It doesn’t just go away when you’re not playing. Runner’s knee pain from marathon training impacts your 12-hour shift at the hospital. Tennis elbow effects your backhand and your backyard projects. That’s why Mueller Sports Medicine develops products that help you perform at work and play.

Our company is rooted in sports and uses this knowledge to develop products that support everyone, no matter who they are or what they do. That’s why we are Built in Sport. Made for Life.™


Curt Mueller


While playing basketball for the University of Wisconsin, Curt Mueller realized athletic training rooms were simply inadequate for serious athletes. But it wasn’t until 1959, while working with his father at the family’s drugstore, that his insight would change everything.

Led by his entrepreneurial spirit, Curt saw a huge opportunity for helping athletes enhance their performance and improve recovery from injury. Blending his sports experience and his pharmacology degree, he coined the term sports medicine. A new industry and Mueller Sports Medicine was born.




We incorporate our sports medicine know-how into braces and supports everyone can benefit from, not just athletes, and offer a variety of products that can help with injury prevention and recovery.
