PREVENT YOUTH SPORTS INJURIES
Over the past 15 years, the amount of youth sporting injuries has seemed to skyrocket! Dr. James Andrews, renowned orthopedic surgeon, used to only do a handful of surgeries on young baseball pitchers that needed Tommy John surgery, and now Dr. Andrews often states that half his clinic is filled with injured Little League aged athletes. Dr. Andrews decided to write a book to help educate parents, coaches, and athletes in an attempt to stop this sports injury epidemic. In the book, Dr. Andrews quotes research from ASMI that shows a 7X increase in youth injury rates since 2000. How about this statistic from the book:
Every year more than 3.5 million children under the age of 14 will require medical treatment for sports-related injuries, the majority of which are avoidable through proper training and awareness.
This is an absolute shame and the reason for Dr. Andrews to write a book at this point in his career. In the introduction to the book, he even discusses this concept and reveals how he felt the need to write a book geared to parents, grandparents, and coaches on young athletes to help stop this rise in injuries.
More importantly, Dr. Andrews has pledged to contribute 100% of his procPrevent Youth Sports Injurieseeds from the book to help support the STOP campaign, the youth sports injury prevention group founded by groups such as the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the National Athletic Training Association, and the Sports Section of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Any Given Monday does not just discuss baseball, in fact it offers sound education on injury prevention for every major sport including football, cheerleading, and over 20 other youth sports.
