At Legacy, our patient health and safety is priority number one.
Although we are always excited to have our patients perform their best, run PB's, win medals and accolades, at the end of the day we are your musculoskeletal doctors and your long term health matters more to us than your win.
With the recent media acknowledgement of our children's lack of movement, predisposition to obesity and poor health, many parents have been turning to sport and physical activity to help improve their children's lives. We think this is wonderful! But, we have also seen adults push kids too far too fast. High performance, results-driven programs are causing injuries in children that we should not be seeing. In my own practice these injuries range from overuse tendonopathies, joint and movement dysfunctions, structural muscular imbalances, to aberrant movement patterns. After months of research, and years of clinical experiences treating youth athletes, I am finally publishing my hard stance on youth strength and conditioning.
