Considering Tackle Football for Your Youth: Please Read

This is a foot and ankle blog, but CTE, or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, is bad and preventable. It is important as parents to at least discuss the subject when placing your child in a sport where CTE is a possibility. Is it Time to Ban Youth Football? When the Last Super Bowl be within the next 20 years? As a society, immune to change, unlikely. But, as an individual with a child you love, worth a few minutes of your time to ponder. Hate mail begin!!
