Dr. Ryan Geringer and Joe McClung were best friends in High School Des Moines, Iowa. They went separate ways after graduating with Ryan becoming a renowned Orthopedic Sports Medicine Surgeon at the prestigious Hughston Clinic and Joe becoming an executive for a large Orthopedic Device Manufacturer. During their respective 20 year careers, they both saw an increasing need between the solutions offered through commercial retail and the high cost results that were derived through a visit to an Orthopedic Clinic. They knew that by combining medical grade orthopedic solutions to a narrowed description of a pain or strain they could provide much needed solutions to empower people to get back to the life they love.
