The development of STOP (Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention) Sports Injuries was initiated by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) in early 2007. Members of the Society’s Board of Directors, including STOP Sports Injuries co-campaign chair and renowned orthopaedic surgeon, James R. Andrews, MD, decided that the issue of overuse injuries in young athletes was becoming a critical issue for its members to address. The Board established a steering committee to investigate what types of activities and materials needed to be developed and in late 2009, the planning and fundraising efforts began in earnest with our renowned organizational partners, including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, SAFE Kids USA, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, and the Sports Physical Therapy Section. These organizations shared AOSSM’s concern about the increase in youth sports injuries and came together under the common goal to STOP Sports Injuries.

The comprehensive public outreach program focuses on the importance of sports safety-specifically relating to overuse and trauma injuries. The initiative not only raises awareness and provides education on injury reduction, but also highlights how playing safe and smart can enhance and extend a child’s athletic career, improve teamwork, reduce obesity rates and create a lifelong love of exercise and healthy activity. Our message underscores the problems of overuse and trauma and emphasizes the expertise of our coalition of experts.

South Jersey Sectionals – Cross Country Delsea High School – November 5th, 2016

A few weeks back, Dr. Mark, Dr. Andrew, and myself, Dr. Craig all attended the South Jersey Sectional Cross Country races at Delsea High School.  This has become a yearly tradition for our offices since we treat runners from a several South Jersey School Districts that all meet at Delsea to find out who moves on.  The school list that we treat athletes from for this event are:

Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Haddon Township, Cherry Hill East, Cherry Hill West, Delsea, Highland, Mainland, Ocean City, Cherokee, Shawnee, Bishop Eustace, Cinnaminson, Kingsway, Millville, Holy Spirit, Paul VI, and Washington Township.

Below are pictures of the event.  It’s one of the most fun events around, outside of some small rivalries, almost everyone gets along very well and the races almost always competitive.
