  • Over 300 athletes from 20 high schools in the region participated in a National Football League (NFL)/National Guard-sponsored program on “High School Player Development” at Lyons High School this past Saturday, June 8.  
    Dr. Chris Brown, Orthopaedic Surgeon/Sports Medicine Specialist with Finger Lakes Bone & Joint/Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, used his experiences as an assistant team physician with the San Francisco 49ers to encourage young athletes to use strength and balance training to reduce risk of injury. Dr. Clarke Brown, from Brownstone Physical Therapy, demonstrated the correct technique of squat exercises, as a means of training the body to be balanced, strong and to maintain proper body alignment during athletics.
     
    “I enjoy the opportunity to educate athletes about reducing sports related injuries,” said Chris Brown, M.D. “Injuries can be vastly reduced by keeping muscles, joints and other structures in optimal shape. That’s why we attend as many of these types of events as we can. It’s a matter of teaching athletes how they can be in the best shape possible to prevent injuries.”
