Dr. James Andrews, orthopedic surgeon and injury consultant to a roster of clients, including Adrian Peterson, RGIII and Drew Brees, will share his perspective on the rising trends of sports injuries in our youth.
"The No. 1 risk factor is year-round playing of a sport. It starts with minor injuries, and by the time they are in high school, it turns up as a serious injury." He estimates he's treating four times as many overuse injuries as he did in 2000, including chipped bones, torn elbow ligaments, cracked kneecaps and lower back damage.
