This podcast has been a long time coming. For at least the last five years, I’ve talked and thought about starting a podcast covering topics in pediatric sports medicine. So, here I am. I’ve partnered with a dear friend from high school to help produce our podcast. And now my vision is finally becoming a reality.
I’m your host, Dr. Mark Halstead. I’ve been practicing sports medicine with a focus on the pediatric athlete for the past 15 years in St Louis. I plan on bringing my clinical experience and expertise in the area of pediatric sports medicine to this podcast. I will strive to make this your go to source whether you’re a practicing physician, athletic trainer, physical therapist, nutritionist, chiropractor, or any health care professional who deals with kids…..and even if you are a curious parent or coach who wants to get a deeper take on the current research and hot topics relevant to young athletes today this podcast will be for you.
I know there are plenty of medical podcasts out there. I’ve certainly listened to many of them and have been a guest on a few as well. Occasionally you may have pediatric sports medicine topics covered on them but that’s not typically their sole focus. I will focus on the high school and younger athlete and cover a wide variety of topics, talking with the country’s experts who work with these young athletes. I plan to discuss concussions, overuse injuries, nutrition, mental health, sports specialization and so much more. The sky’s the limit and I’m really excited to be able to get this project started.
