16 year pro hockey veteran, Nate DiCasmirro broke his hand during a hockey game. It wasn’t just good luck that quickly got him back on the ice.
In December of 2016, professional hockey player, Nate DiCasmirro suffered a broken hand during a game with JDD Jessince (Slovenia) in the Alps Hockey League.
“I blocked a shot, [and] the puck hit me right above my right thumb joint. I had to have surgery to repair it and they put in 2 screws.”
Normally, an injury like this can set into motion a slow and sometimes season-ending recovery. Surgery alone is no walk in the park but the process of having a joint in a traditional cast is restrictive. The prospect of getting a cast wet alone is a deal-breaker for any athlete. Sweat and physical therapy which often includes water therapy make traditional casts a bane.
After breaking my hand, I needed something that would be waterproof and strong enough for me to continue to train while my hand healed. ActivArmor allowed me to keep training and skating while my hand was recovering. Once I was cleared to play hockey again, I had been on the ice and training for weeks, which allowed me to stay in shape and not miss anytime getting back into ‘game shape’. I feel with ActivArmor I was able to return at least 2-3 weeks early. Even my team doctor and coach were a bit surprised I was ready to play.”
What really sets ActivArmor apart from others is the fact that it is covered by most insurance plans, is listed with the FDA, and providing clinics are rapidly spreading across the United States. It’s easy for any doctor to prescribe and it makes both the patient and doctor’s lives/jobs easier.
