Fall, Football, and Injury Prevention

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta GA Doctors that Treat AthletesCrisp air, falling leaves, and getting ready for that tailgate. It can only mean one thing - football season is here. And in addition to gearing up to watch your favorite college and pro teams on television, you may also be loading up the car with pads and helmets and equipment for your kids' own games.

Unfortunately, for every headline about Tom Brady's perfect pass, there's another one announcing a debilitating injury, and warning of the dangers and risks associated with playing the season's favorite game.

In fact, of the two million injuries suffered by high school athletes each year, 28% were sustained by football players. It's also estimated that around 1.2 million football-related injuries occur each year, with lower extremity injuries (think knees and hips) accounting for 50% and sprains and strains counting for 40%.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is Atlanta's premier orthopedic and sports medicine practice. Our doctors are certified and trained to treat and manage a full range of athletic injuries - from hip and knee pain, to groin and ankle strain, to more serious spinal injuries.

If a quick slant has turned you or your child into an armchair quarterback, give us a call today. Our team will help craft an individualized treatment program specific to the injury that will have you or your little athlete back on the field safely and quickly.
