About This Event

Sports offer a lot to our youngest athletes: healthy activity, teamwork and hopefully, plain old fun. But injuries big and small can interfere. Random mishaps can't always be avoided—they're just part of the game. But relentless immersion in a single sport like specializing too soon, playing year-round and never taking a break may contribute to overuse injuries in kids. Join us on the Green for our South Shore Health’s Ask a Health Expert series, where all of your questions on sports wellness will be answered… along with some great tips for parents on how to treat or prevent sports injuries.

Each month, a South Shore Health clinical expert will visit the Derby St. Green for our Ask a Health Expert Series to give parents an opportunity to ask questions about some of the more frequent topics of concerns our doctors and clinicians hear about on a regular basis. While the subjects vary, you are always invited to bring any of your health and wellness questions to the expert.
