Abstract:

This book is a tool for both maximizing talent and protecting the body for a lifetime of physical activity and health. It also emphasizes and promotes the importance of the American Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Society's "STOP Program" to prevent injuries in youth sports. From tennis elbow to severe trauma, the author, an orthopedic surgeon, has treated countless sports injuries during his medical career. Known for performing Tommy John surgeries, and a consultant to some of the fiercest teams in college and professional sports, he is the father of modern sports medicine and one of the most influential figures in the world of athletics. Here he distills his practical wisdom and professional advice to combat a growing epidemic of injury among sports' most vulnerable population: its young athletes. Every year more than 3.5 million children will require medical treatment for sports related injuries, the majority of which are avoidable through proper training and awareness. This book is a sport-by-sport guide to injury prevention and treatment, written specifically for the parents, grandparents, and coaches of young athletes. From identifying eating disorders to preventing career-ending ACL tears and concussions, it is a compendium of practical advice for every major sport, including football, gymnastics, judo, basketball, tennis, baseball, cheerleading, wrestling, and more. This guide reveals how young athletes can maximize their talent and maintain a lifetime of health both on the field and off.
