This event is an opportunity for parents and coaches to learn more about Sports Medicine specifically with youth baseball players. This is an extremely important topic as the trend for serious youth baseball injuries are rising at a frightening rate. A decade ago, nearly every Tommy John (elbow) surgery you heard about was done on an MLB pitcher usually in the upper 20's or 30's. However, today, more college and high school pitchers undergo this surgery than MLB pitchers. In fact, the state of New York found that 17-18 year old's had Tommy John surgery more than any other age group. Studies have shown that nearly 80% of youth baseball pitchers have experience elbow or shoulder pain while throwing. No matter how talented a player is or how much work they put into improving their baseball skills, if they can not stay healthy, none of that matters. Multiple studies have shown that parent and coach education on youth baseball injuries can significantly help to reduce the seriousness of the injuries we see as well as even prevent them from happening. This in turn can allow our youth baseball players to continue playing the game they love pain free and save countless dollars in medical bills. 

Through this seminar, you will learn all about youth baseball injuries. From why they occurring, to how to recognize an injury, to preventing the injuries from occurring. This seminar will have guest speakers including Dr. Vincent Key, Head Team Physician for the Kansas City Royals as well as Kyle Veazey, Physical Therapist with the Univeristy of Kansas Health Systems.
