Welcome, Traction Sports!
Clinic Teams Up with Traction Sports to Offer Services at New Sports Performance Center
The clinic is opening its new 14,310-square-foot sports performance center at Hattiesburg Clinic – Tatum Park this month, located at 103 Medical Park, off Veterans Memorial Drive, Highway 11. The center will include weight systems, a half-court basketball area, workout area and baseball batting nets. It will also feature a partial turf football field that opens up to an exterior natural turf field to accommodate football, soccer, volleyball and other sports training activities.
Traction Sports Performance, which is based out of Baton Rouge, La., will offer training programs at the center for various levels of athletes and physically active individuals. Their programs, available to people age 9 through adults, are designed to reduce the risk of injury, improve athletic performance and motivate through education. In addition to youth and collegiate programs, they also provide training for professional athletes, adult groups and personal training sessions.
“Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is pleased to have joined in a partnership with Traction Sports to provide comprehensive sports performance programs focusing on enhancing all levels of athletic performance for athletes and all active individuals in the Pine Belt area,” said Ann Trigg, administrative director for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. “With the opening of this sports center and then our medical facility at the same location later this fall, we are excited to be the first facility in our area that provides comprehensive orthopaedic, sports medicine and sports performance services in one complex.”
Mike Williamson, administrative director of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation at Hattiesburg Clinic, said these facilities would be especially beneficial for rehabilitating injured athletes and enhancing athletes’ performance levels.
“It is important to bridge the gap between in-clinic rehab and return-to-play by having simulated sports activities. Also, it is important to have sports performance training geared toward specific sports to improve performance and reduce injuries,” he said.
Mack Chuilli, chief executive officer for Traction Sports Performance, said he and his team are looking forward to bringing their services to the Pine Belt.
“We are so excited to be partnered with Hattiesburg Clinic on this new facility. They are a leader in the Hattiesburg community and we are just excited to be the ones to complete the full circle of sports medicine, sports rehabilitation and now sports performance,” said Chuilli.
He said Traction’s services could benefit anyone, not just the typical athlete.
“There is an athlete in all of us. Our entire training philosophy is designed to help you move and feel better. We want our parents and adults to be able to compete in recreational sports and enjoy sports activities all their lives, which is why our adult programs are just as important as our athlete programs.”
