Webcast Discusses Guidelines for the Sidelines: Common Musculoskeletal Injuries in Sports

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Webcast Discusses Guidelines for the Sidelines: Common Musculoskeletal Injuries in Sports. Sports injuries lead to not only time away from sport but also missed school, missed work, medical expenses and sometimes lasting residual effects. In the United States alone, there are approximately 8.6 million sports and recreation related injuries each year. Over a third of these injuries land in the emergency room and half are seen in for doctor’s office—that makes sports-related injuries one of the most common types of acute visits. So, here to teach us about the most common forms of acute musculoskeletal sports injuries on the sidelines and how to manage them are two of Ohio State University’s Sports Medicine experts. We’re pleased to introduce Associate Professor of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Dr Timothy Miller and Associate Professor of Family Medicine & Sports Medicine Dr Bryant Walrod.
