Sports injuries have increased due to the rise in the number of young athletes playing sports, the development of overaggressive training programs, year-round game schedules, and participation in multiple sports in one season.
An injury in a young athlete can potentially end an athletic career early and become a source of life-long disability.
In SURVIVING A SEASON, sports medicine specialist Dr. Michael DeFranco explains the important issues surrounding sports injuries.

This invaluable resource is a basic guide for young athletes, parents, and coaches on how to stay healthy and enjoy sports without getting hurt.
