US Lacrosse announced today that DJO Global has been named as the Official Sports Brace of US Lacrosse and Supporting Partner of Team USA.  

DJO Global, Inc. is a medical device company that produces a variety of orthopedic products for rehabilitation, pain management and physical therapy, and provides advanced protective and preventive technologies to the world’s most elite athletes. 

As part of the partnership, Team USA players will wear DJO Global brand bracing and durable goods products exclusively, and receive medical treatments through the use of state-of-the art equipment. 

Collaboration on injury prevention research will also be among the priorities of the partnership.

“This is a great opportunity for our Center for Sport Science to work with a world leader in sports medicine while also providing a valuable benefit to all of our members,” said Dr. Bruce Griffin, director of the Center for Sport Science at US Lacrosse. 

US Lacrosse members will have access to discounts from DJO Global’s premiere brands of DonJoy and Chattanooga, ensuring access for lacrosse athletes of all ages to the most advanced protection and prevention products. 

DJO’s extensive menu of braces includes products designed for virtually every part of the athlete’s body, including knee, ankle, back, calf, elbow, and wrist.

“DJO products are designed with the athlete in mind to provide confidence and maximum performance in sport. If we can educate the public on how our unique designs and technology collaborate to restore movement, the products will speak for themselves,” said Michael McBrayer, senior vice president of global business and professional relations at DJO Global.

Ultimately, US Lacrosse anticipates that its partnership with DJO Global will help push the progress for a healthier and safer sport.

"We see this partnership as a unique opportunity to invest in the sport of lacrosse through shared resources and expertise, and to set the standard for youth player care by providing best-in-class products," said Brett Hurwitz, managing director of strategic partnerships for US Lacrosse. 

“The partnership between DJO Global and US Lacrosse brings together two national organizations which are reimagining health, wellness, and a positive sporting experience; not only for the lacrosse community, but for young athletes in all sports and active individuals across the country,” said Dr. Richard Hinton, medical director for MedStar Sports Medicine and an executive member of the US Lacrosse Sports Science and Safety Committee.
