So long as there have been sports, there have been sports injuries. From Little League to Pop Warner and Ironmen to Weekend Warriors, we are all pushing the limits and demanding pristine performance whether the goal is a home run, slam dunk, 40-yard-dash, or the finish line. All factors must be considered when deciding proper treatment of a sports injury including age, sex, experience, environment, and mechanism of injury (MOI). A conservative approach following return to play (RTP) guidelines based on all these factors will ensure recovery is neither or prolonged or premature and the athlete can get back to doing what they love.
