Coffee & Conversations to focus on reducing sports injuries for La Crosse area kids
The effort is a collaborative effort of Mayo Clinic Health System and Misty's Dance Unlimited
UNDATED (WKBT) – An estimated two of every five kids visiting emergency rooms arrive due to a sports injury.
That’s according to the National Safety Council.
Coming up Saturday, the latest ‘Coffee and Conversation’ program will focus on methods to keep young athletes healthy.
A lot of reasons lead to injuries from little rest time to focus or overuse.
The injuries can have a long-term impact.
“Sometime not only may you suffer lingering effects of that injury later on into your years. But it also might deter you from future sport participation or physical activity,” said Dr. Andrew Jagim, Mayo Clinic Health System director of sports medicine research.
The event is a joint effort between Mayo Clinic Health System and Misty’s Dance Unlimited.
