Esports Medical Program Launched by Skillshot Media and Northside Hospital

 

Esports production company, Skillshot Media, is partnering with the Northside Hospital Sports Medicine Network to create “a comprehensive esports medical program for SMITE and Paladins esports athletes.”

 

 

“In discussions with the Northside Hospital Sports Medicine Network, it became clear that they are not only taking early notice of the rising trend of esports injuries, but also aspire to serve our pro players just like athletes in traditional sports – benefiting from nutrition, exercise, rest, and best practices for optimizing performance and prolonging careers,” said Todd Harris, president of Skillshot Media. “We are thrilled to partner with Northside to provide complementary injury-prevention services for our players and also share ongoing research with the broader esports community.”

 

Northside Hospital Sports Medicine Network is a team of medical professionals focused on sports medicine, including orthopedics and performance experts. Skillshot will be working with Northside to educate them about the esports industry, support research studies, and create content highlighting esports medicine. Sports medicine is a growing area of interest within the esports industry and through preventive care and innovative research, they hope to maximize esports athletes’ performance.
