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.

Sports Shoulder and Elbow Injuries

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Sports Shoulder and Elbow Injuries. Prior to his surgery, Tommy John had won 124 major league games. After surgery, he went on to win 164 more, had 3 all-star appearances, and 2 second place finishes for the Cy Young award. He retired in 1989 at age 46. For the last two years of his career, he was the oldest player in the major leagues. The surgery has become legendary and by 2014, fully one third of all major league pitchers had undergone the Tommy John procedure. A professional baseball pitcher may be the extreme, but anyone who uses their arms for sports, recreation, or work can put their elbows and shoulders at risk of damage. And these joints are incredibly complex. So when things go wrong, you need someone who really knows what they are doing to evaluate and treat it. On this CME webcast, we have just that person to tell us about sports-related elbow and shoulder injuries. Dr. Jonathan Barlow is an Assistant Professor of Orthopedics.
