    As an orthopedic surgeon at Commonwealth Orthopaedics, I am seeing a rise in the number of youth sports injuries while the age of these young athletes is decreasing. In particular, I am seeing more overuse injuries in younger kids. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), high school athletes alone account for an estimated two million injuries, 500,000 doctor visits, and 30,000 hospitalizations every year.

    That is why the AOSSM and the AAOS joined the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, the National ... Read More

    Last week's assignment was to identify unconscious eating, one of the main causes of weight gain or weight plateaus. Click here to review last week's topic.
