With a successful fall season of high school sports returning, 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 returning to play safely, how to mitigate sports injuries and what care to seek before and after returning to play.

Virtual Town Hall for IUSD 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: preparing for the full sports season amid COVID, injury prevention, navigating care when athletes are injured (where do I go, when should I go to the doctor vs. ER?), what it takes to return to sport safely and reduce any risk to injury and overall health. Will conclude with Q&A.
