Medical Monday 1-13-20


On this week’s Medical Monday, we decided to stick with the sports theme and learn a little more about the world of sports medicine.  To help us better understand sports medicine, Dr. Andrew Parks, a Family Medicine and Sports Medicine Physician with Our Lady of the Lake, joined us to talk about a few common football injuries ahead of the big game.  Dr. Parks explains how sports medicine is different from most other forms of medicine.  He also explains how to go about treating common football injuries and how long a player will be out due to a particular injury.  Finally, he breaks down how to determine when to keep a player off the field.  Hear the full interview here!
