David Heidloff, Athletico’s Manager of The Sports Performance Center at MOR in Oak Brook Illinois, talks with Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph and Steve Kashul about the opening of the brand new Sports Performance Center at Rush in Oak Brook IL, what services it offers and how it is different than a typical strength and conditioning facility.

At Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR) Sports Performance Center, our goal is to bridge the gap between sports medicine and sports performance. Using evidence-based methods and the world’s best equipment at our state-of-the-art facility, we are helping athletes of all levels transition from injury to a confident return to their sport. Our programs don’t just get you back to activity, they also enhance performance – building strength, improving agility, addressing injury risk factors, and bolstering confidence for athletes returning to sport.

Within our new facility in Oak Brook is a state-of-the-art sports performance center dedicated to helping patients confidently return to sport after injury with programs such as a functional sports assessment. Additional services are also available such as blood flow restriction training, video throwing assessment, strength and conditioning services and video gait analysis.

Our team has extensive experience working with athletes from the professional teams like the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox and Chicago Fire as well as little leagues and club soccer teams. We believe all athletes deserve access to effective strength and conditioning programming derived from medically sound foundations.
