Raleigh, NC, February 23, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Mark Galland, a physician at Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina (www.orthonc.com), has announced the release of a podcast discussing prevention of common youth baseball injuries. In the podcast, Galland provides his expert opinion on some of the most common injuries associated with baseball: from little leaguer’s elbow to torn labrums and everything in between, and gives advice to parents, coaches and athletes on safety techniques for injury prevention.
Galland serves as the team physician and orthopaedic consultant to the Carolina Mudcats, the advanced A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, as medical director and orthopaedic consultant to the Louisburg College athletic program, and as the team physician and orthopaedic consultant to several local high schools.

“To prevent injury when playing baseball as a young athlete, the most important thing is to resist the temptation to achieve short term success at the expense of the long term goals of the athlete,” said Galland. “Too often I see that in the pressure to win we sacrifice the athlete, the baseball player or the pitcher that this child could be when he or she reach collegiate or professional levels.”
