Football Season and Injury Prevention

football-bwAs football season opens this week, the number of related injuries will increase. We will see many of those here in the office. Our practice specializes in sports medicine and we have treated sports related injuries for over 20 years, but we want to help with injury prevention.

I’m a member of the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine, an international organization of professionals dedicated to research, education and fellowship in the field of sports medicine. The AOSSM website has a patient portal that provides a number of educational pieces including “Football Injury Prevention” . When you follow the link, you will also find articles covering a variety of sports.

Best of luck to all those hitting the gridiron, this is when all of your hard work pays off. I look forward to seeing some of you on the sideline as we cover area games.
