Early History of the Soft Tissue Center
The high degree of successful outcomes with athletes drew the attention of the weight training and bodybuilding media. IRONMAN Magazine had a feature article on Horrigan in the May 1986 issue and this was followed by another feature article in MUSCLE AND FITNESS in the June 1986 issue. Articles followed in SPORTS FITNESS (1986), POWERLIFTING USA (1988), IRONSPORT (1988) and another feature in IRONMAN in 1990.
Dr. Horrigan wrote the IRONMAN Magazine Sports Medicine Column beginning in May 1989 and continued for ten years and wrote over 100 installments. There was a break in the column from 1999 – 2003. The Column resumed in the March 2004 issue and continues to this day. The Sports Medicine Column for INSIDE KUNG-FU was also provided in the late 1990’s.
Reprints of the IRONMAN Sports Medicine Column have appeared in MS. FITNESS Magazine. An article featuring the Soft Tissue Center appeared in INSIDE VOLLEYBALL in 1999. There were numerous articles in various newspapers around the USA and Canada including the Vancouver Sun, Winnipeg local paper, Los Angeles Times, The Hockey News, and Philadelphia Inquirer during this time for the work with many professional hockey players. A blog from Dr. Horrigan began in The Huffington Post in 2013.
