7. Raising a Young Athlete with Dr. Greg Canty ParentMD Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Dr. Honaker welcomes a medical school friend (and fellow western Kentucky native) Dr. Greg Canty to the show for a bit of reminiscing, but mostly a lively conversation about raising a child athlete.

As someone who grew up in the gym – his father who was a basketball coach – Dr. Canty was exposed early to sports medicine and naturally gravitated to the specialty years later. He started his career in pediatric emergency medicine and went back to do an additional fellowship to finally focus more on sports medicine. He is now the Medical Director of the sports medicine center at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.

Dr. Canty is the father of three girls and provides a very relatable perspective of a dad supporting young athletes.

Topics covered in this podcast: 

The #1 thing that people are looking to achieve when they come to see a sports medicine doctor ESPN Medicine vs Juvenile Sports Medicine What’s the right balance of parenting a young athlete? When do I push them and when do I let them figure it out? The impacts of coaches and lessons learned The role of a parent in a young athlete’s life The benefits of and life skills from sports participation, specifically for young girls A preview of what’s inside the specialty toolkits by Dr. Canty The best advice for pediatricians and parents when it comes to guiding a young athlete The Specialty Toolkits are available at https://parentmd.com/specialty-toolkits
