OTRF is the nonprofit foundation 501 (C)(3) established in 2007 by Dr. Steven Chudik with the Steven Chudik Shoulder & Knee Injury Clinic, Westmont, and Western Springs, Ill.,  to fund research and education for the purpose of keeping people active and healthy. In an effort to prevent injury and remain active—especially for young athletes—Dr. Chudik saw a growing demand from patients, clinicians and other healthcare professionals for up-to-date medical information and unbiased research on injury prevention, arthritis and wear and tear on the musculoskeletal systems—joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, etc.
