3.5 million youth athletes require medical treatment each year after suffering an injury. While this number is alarmingly high, did you know that there are ways to decrease this risk? What if I told you we could reduce injury risk by at least 33% in our young athletes and even cut the total number of injuries in half? Putting the health and safety of the children in our community should be a priority, and there are many ways to assist them. Local Doctor of Physical Therapy and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Colin O’Keefe will be speaking on this topic and providing insight into how we can help athletes minimize risk of injury while still maximizing their performance.
