In 1976 Professional’s Choice founder and president, Dal Scott, broke his leg in a horseback riding accident. To assist in a more comfortable and speedy recovery, he developed a neoprene orthopedic product. This was the start of Dricast Orthopedics, Inc.

Because of Scott’s passion for horses, it didn’t take long to redirect the company focus to the equine industry. In 1986 he began manufacturing therapeutic equine products, and Scott renamed the company Professional’s Choice Sports Medicine Products, Inc. The Professional’s Choice research and development team then went to work on what is now known around the world as the Original Sports Medicine Boot. Scientific and clinical studies created the best protective and shock absorbing leg care boots available; the Professional’s Choice Sports Medicine Boot made its debut in 1990.
