Extreme, Action and Adventure Sports
Extreme, Action and Adventure sports have always been a personal interest for Dr Blecher. Freeskiing, mountain climbing, SCUBA diving, wakeboarding, waterskiing, barefoot waterskiing, whitewater canoeing and kayaking, boxing, sailing and windsurfing are all sports that he has personally enjoyed. An understanding of wilderness and travel medicine have also helped him on his adventures from summiting Mt Kilimanjaro to canoeing the rivers of the arctic to diving with the sharks in the south pacific. Dr Blecher has also been a medical consultant for ESPN and has been a treating physician at the X-Games and Gravity Games. He has served as a ringside physician for amateur boxing and has many patients who participate in mixed martial arts. In addition to traumatic orthopedic injuries seen in many of these types of sports, concussions are a common injury and Dr Blecher also offers baseline concussion testing for auto racing, motocross and other sports that require yearly concussion screenings.
