Your Health, Objectively. Treating Everyone Right.
In Your Corner with CORA continues our series on common upper and lower extremity injuries for football players, as well as your everyday next door neighbor ‘Joe’ or ‘Jane’. Over the past five weeks, our expert panels have tackled the topics of Shoulder Injuries, Pectoralis Major Tears, Distal Biceps Tendon Tears, and AC Joint Injuries.
Join us this week as Dr. Richard Lehman hosts yet another phenomenal panel of sports medicine professionals who have been around the sport of football for decades -upon decades- to talk about a injury for football players commonly known as stingers.
- Dr. Richard Lehman, Director of U.S. Center for Sports Medicine + CEO LehmanHealth
- Dr. Tim McGarry, MD, McGarry Orthopedic Clinic (Bristol, VA)
- Bryan Anderson, ATC, Director of Sports Medicine & Community Outreach at CORA (Florida)
- Charles Peters, DPT, CSCS, Level 2 USAW, Senior Clinic Manager of CORA North Bristol (Bristol, VA)
What does the term Burner or Stinger really mean for the injured athlete? Physiologically, what happens when an athlete suffers a stinger?
The panel answers these questions before diving even deeper into stingers including protocols for evaluation, treatment and return-to-play. You’ll leave with a better understanding of what the injury means for you as the injured athlete, or as parents concerned for your child when considering a return to the playing field.
Watch and learn more about differential diagnoses when an athlete has symptoms consistent with a burner. Plus, our panel describes the process for how the team doctor or sports medicine professional evaluates an athlete on the sideline to help the symptoms of burning and dead arm. This session is perfect for athletes of all levels of play from the high school backup to the NFL superstar.
