Doctor Oklahoma Podcast- Episode 5: High School Sports

Doctor Oklahoma is a podcast that shines a light on uniquely Oklahoman health challenges by speaking with INTEGRIS health care professionals who live here, practice here and are willing to lend their time and expertise to all of our listeners.

School is already in full swing and most high schoolers are already hard at work, especially if they play sports. We aspire for our kids to be healthy on the field, but that can be a challenge. No sport is perfectly safe, even if we wish they were.

For this episode of Doctor Oklahoma, we’re joined by orthopedic surgeon and sports physician Dr. David B. Parker. Dr. Parker shares information about the types of injuries you may see on the field and how you can prevent them. We also discuss how specific injuries heal and when to seek advanced care for them.

If your student athlete is starting another semester at school, this episode is a must-listen.
