Segment One: HELPING COACHES DO THE RIGHT THING

Dev K. Mishra, M.D. Founder, Sideline Sports Doc

Sports teams and leagues may have coaching first-aid or other risk management tools at their disposal, but many coaches are still not fully trained in handling on-field injuries. Many well-intentioned resources available don’t really teach the coach how to handle on-field injury effectively. Sideline Sports Doc breaks down the essentials of on-field injury management into easy-to-digest segments that you can use to manage and significantly reduce player injury within your team or league. Watch the Video.

Discover what you need to know to make the right decision…
