Jeffrey M. Klauser, MD
In a series of five educational videos, Jeffrey M. Klauser, MD, a sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery, shoulder & knee surgery specialist at Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists, shares important health insights with athletes and their coaches and parents. Theses short videos are far-ranging and cover many hot topics in sports medicine. From preventive measures such as proper conditioning to tactical procedures following an injury, Dr. Klauser provides helpful tips and guidance. Many elements of the series were shot on-location at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard where Dr. Klauser serves as team orthopaedic doctor to the Bridgeport Bluefish.
As Dr. Klauser explains in the video titled "Can Pain Be Good?", it’s extremely important for athletes of all ages to talk about their pain with trainers and coaches to ensure that small injuries do not turn into larger ones. In the clip entitled "Listen to Your Body", he urges everyone to pay close attention to their bodies during the season and focus on conditioning in the off-season. The third video highlights the advent of orthopaedic walk-in centers and their positive impact on athletes. Sports treatment modality R.I.C.E. is featured in another clip and Dr. Klauser closes out the series with a video highlighting the benefits to athletes and families of having comprehensive musculoskeletal services bundled together in one multi-specialty practice such as Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists.
