HIGH NOON: Health & Sports (8-12-20)

What is “spondylolysis”? Why does this lower back pain occur in younger student-athletes? How do you even say it? We discussed all of these topics and more regarding back pain for young athletes with Dr. Mark Carlson for Sanford Orthopedics & Sports Medicine’s “Health & Sports” segment on High Noon.
