Be proactive in stemming the tide of overuse injuries in young athletes. Explore preventative measures for stress fractures and tendinopathy.

Full Description:
Athletics present a wonderful opportunity for children to realize their physical potential and learn valuable life lessons. It also opens the athlete up to the possibility of injury. Injury rates are increasing as children enter into and streamline athletic competition at earlier ages. We treat these injuries in our clinics, and with the changing healthcare environment, we have fewer visits in which to do so. If the healthcare provider hopes to produce positive outcomes for our patient athletes, greater emphasis needs to be placed on injury prevention.  

This webinar investigates the current literature in regards to two main types of overuse injuries: stress fractures and tendinopathies. Participants will learn the definitions, etiologies, treatment, and most importantly the prevention of them through modifiable factors. 

Course Includes:
Live Q&A
Presentation Handout
Post session recording access
CE Credit
