A message from our doctors,

Spring is in the air, and for many of us, that means baseball and softball seasons are in full swing. At PANA, we encourage safe physical activity at all ages. Although both baseball and softball are considered relatively safe sports, some common sense guidelines should be followed in order to prevent injury. In the article below from the journal Pediatrics, you can find the stats regarding the maximum number of pitches children of varying ages should throw, rest requirements, early warning signs of elbow and shoulder overuse injury and much more. Let's enjoy the Spring - and play ball - safely!

Thanks for the information on the safety during baseball season. The link is very helpful. I'll need to tell my friends to look at the site also. Very helpful!
