At the Bone & Joint Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation Center, we help create lifelong musculoskeletal health, emphasizing physical activity and exercise across the lifespan. Our goal is to prevent injury and achieve optimal health, mobility, and quality of life throughout each person’s lifespan.
Our two primary areas of interest are musculoskeletal injury and arthritis and head injury and concussion; our research focuses on injury prevention and on effective treatment and rehabilitation that are essential to putting the person back on the path to optimal health.
We also focus on seven sub-areas for different populations: exercise and conditioning; sports; veterans' health; recreation and play; movement and physical activity for children and adolescents; physical activity for successful aging; and work-related physical activity.
Mike Teeter went through college and six years of pro football before hanging up the pads to return to his hometown of Grand Haven, Michigan raise a family and start a commercial real estate development business. Strangely, Mike tore his ACL in eighth grade but never knew it until he was playing in the NFL.
