Wake Orthopaedics hosted the 2nd Annual Youth Sports Injury Prevention Clinic. We joined forces with WakeMed, Safe Kids Wake County, DuPuy, and the Carolina RailHawks to offer athletes, parents, and coaches techniques to prevent and manage sport related injuries. Dr. Mark Wood & Dan Cyr were guest speakers while Jeff Herbst & Kimberly Floyd led the athletes in the field exercises. The event focuses on ACL and overuse injuries, proper stretching, educational displays on concussions, heart conditions, and the importance of baseline EKG along with proper nutrition and hydration. Over 300 participants and their families attended this year. The youth sports injury prevention clinic is one of several taking place throughout the country as part of a national education campaign focusing on raising awareness.
