Abstract

Musculoskeletal concerns account for up to 30 % of patient encounters within family medicine. Youth sport participation continues to increase nationwide with over 30 million youth and teens participating [1]. High school athletics alone accounts for over two million injuries, half a million physician visits, and 30,000 hospitalizations annually [2]. Growing sports specializations within adolescents has led to an increase in overuse injuries; accounting for half of all adolescent injuries [1]. Adults are not immune to athletic injuries, as weekend warriors suffer numerous injuries. Weekend warriors commonly suffer ankle injuries, knee injuries, dislocations, and overuse injuries in attempts to stay active.
