Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush Physicians and Chicago White Sox Assistant Athletic Trainer Discuss Rise in Injuries and Prevention Strategies for Athletes
How much practice is too much for young athletes? Some of the nation's leading sports medicine specialists and athletic trainers will address that question during a free public webinar, 7:00 p.m., Thursday, May 10, which is open to all athletes, parents, athletic trainers and coaches nationwide.
Medical experts who treat Chicago White Sox players will discuss the significant rise in shoulder and elbow injuries among young athletes who use repetitive overhead movements and discuss prevention strategies. Brian Ball, assistant athletic trainer for the Chicago White Sox, will team up for the webinar with Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph, head team physician for the Chicago White Sox, team physician for the Chicago Bulls and sports medicine specialist at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, and Dr. Gregory Nicholson, team doctor for the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls and shoulder/elbow specialist at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush. They will comment about how over practicing can result in injuries to the developing musculoskeletal structure of a young athlete and could lead to even bigger problems in adulthood.
