Sports Medicine

As more children and teens participate in year-round organized sports, the possibility of a sports related injury increases. Injuries and conditions of the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints experienced by young athletes can be very different than with adult patients. Also, children are not always as adept as adults in communicating the health problems that they may be experiencing.
