VIRTUAL TOWN HALL WITH IPSF & HOAG ORTHOPEDIC INSTITUTE
With a successful fall season of high school sports already started, student athletes are quickly resuming their busy athletic schedule. Without appropriate preparation and conditioning, athletes can have increased risk of injury. They need to have proper attention to warm up / cool down and an awareness of any pain they might be feeling in their joints or muscles.
HOI Sports Medicine experts have been working closely with professional and youth athletes to ensure they are prepared to return to play and know what care to seek if they are injured. HOI is partnering with IPSF to create a virtual Town Hall event to ensure parents and student athletes are armed with information on how to mitigate sports injuries and what care to seek before and after returning to play.
Virtual Town Hall for IPSF Parents and Players:
Meet the physicians and care team at Hoag Orthopedic Institute during the virtual Town Hall event. Topics addressed by the care team will include: injury prevention, navigating care when athletes are injured (where do I go, when should I go to the doctor?), what it takes to return to sport safely and reduce any risk to injury and overall health. Will conclude with Q&A. Parents will be invited to submit questions in advance of the event.
