PHILADELPHIA — At the Impact of Sports 2014 Summit, James R. Andrews, MD, spoke about the increasing number of children who participate in youth sports and the epidemic of youth sports injuries from year-round, specialized training.

He advised orthopedic surgeons to make a concerted effort to be involved at the local level as well as educate parents, grandparents and coaches that the potential damage in overworked young athletes can be irreversible and cause athletic careers to end before they even get started.
