Orthopedic Clinics Unaffected By Credit Crunch

With the current credit crunch effecting a number of businesses and business models nationwide, there have been few that remain unaffected. One such industry is Sports Medicine and Orthopedics. In fact, all over the country a number of these clinics have been opening up, in particular the northwestern United States. One clinic in particular "Rebound" has set a foothold in the Portland, OR area. The Portland orthopedic clinic has received quite a bit of growth and has found itself the frontrunner in the Portland orthopedics market. 
It will be interesting to see if the current economic crisis will find its way into this industry, or if health care reform will begin to have an effect on the arena of Portland sports medicine. Honestly, it is too early to tell for sure, but there is a possibility that the industry could see some changes should President-Elect Obama or Congress try their hand at the aforementioned reform. As for Rebound, I would expect them to continue their success in the Portland orthopedic market.
