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.™

 

BUILT IN SPORT

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.

 

MADE FOR LIFE

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.

  • 7 Ways Kinesiology Tape Assists with Healing and Athletic Performance

    Most athletes, coaches, and trainers are aware of the RICE method for injury recovery, along with treating the regular sprains and strains. But new technology in injury recovery is constantly being developed. Kinesiology tape is one such method. Rather than focusing on the injury directly, kinesiology tape takes work and tension away from the injury and redirects it to stronger surrounding tissue.

    By using this special type of long-adhesion flexible tape, you can redistribute tension in muscles and ligaments. What's incredible is how many different uses for kinesiology tape there are.  By layering and directing the tape over various target areas, you can relieve pain, enhance your form, or improve healing.

  • Knee Sleeves: What Are They and When to Wear Them

    Knee injuries are a major problem in athletics around the world. Not only can blown ACLs, MCLs, PCLs, and torn cartilage take athletes out of the game for long periods of time, if poorly handled and not allowed enough recovery time athletes may never be able to play again. When it comes to braces and supports for the knee, athletes may only think to slip on their hard brace in order to prevent injury. However, these hard braces not only limit knee mobility, but will prevent the joint from becoming stronger overtime. For athletes looking to prevent knee injury without compromising their knees, then knee sleeves are the way to go.

  • The Surprising Connection between Knee and Back Pain

    Nearly one-third of all Americans suffer from knee pain at one point. In addition, as many as 84% will experience back pain during their lifetime. If you suffer from knee pain, there's a good chance that back problems may be causing it. We'll take a look at the surprising connection between knee pain and back pain below.

    Helpful tips for knee and back pain

    Signs your Back Problem is Causing Knee Pain

    If your knee pain stems from a back problem, it may be obvious because you might experience discomfort in both areas at the same time. That's not true in all cases though, as some people will notice pain in the knees but not in the back. You may also have back and knee pain intermittently, and never be bothered by both at the same time.

    When back pain is the cause of knee problems,

  • How to Treat Runner's Knee Pain and Get Back to Training

    Avoiding knee joint pain from runner's knee is all about maintaining form. When you run on a regular basis for sport or training, form is the most important thing to maintain. Yes, you need to stay hydrated, wear the right clothes, and eat a light breakfast before your run. But form is what will ensure that every step is doing the best possible benefit for your body, and avoiding any potential to do harm.

    Of course, no one's form is perfect all the time. Fatigue, uneven terrain, breaking in new shoes, or even just running while distracted can cause your form to slip. For many runners, form is more challenging because of physical conditions that make it difficult to achieve a perfect alignment from the spine to the hips, knees, ankles, to the bottoms of the feet. Conditions that make perfect form impossible will make a runner more susceptible to running injuries like sprains and runner's knee.

  • Comprehensive Guide to Knee injuries

    An active lifestyle is being healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally. Many stay active by doing multiple tasks, participate in sports, or exercising regularly. When you exercise your brain gets a boost of endorphins, which makes you feel happier and more energetic. We all could use more natural "feel good" chemicals in our lives.

    However, anytime we participate in sports, activities, and exercise, there is a risk of injury. Some injuries are more problematic than others because they take a toll on our ability to get around, especially injuries to the legs, feet, or knees. Your lower body is necessary to keep up an active lifestyle. When knee injuries strike, a stabilizer can help to provide support to expedite healing.
