It’s Better to Miss One Game Than the Whole Season

The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.

Skin Infections & Treatment

Reducing Skin Infections Using Body Wipes

The results of a study comparing 75% isopropyl alcohol based body wipes versus soap/water based body wipes are now available in a report from BJ Anderson MD.

Conclusion: "The use of skin wipes help to reduce skin infections in high school wrestlers when used at tournaments after each match. Soap/H2O cleansing wipes show statistically significant reduction in these infections. More studies need to be performed to see if 75% IPA wipes will be as efficacious."
