The Pittsburgh Sports Report and Allegheny General Hospital present the next installment of “Get In The Game,” a series of informational videos geared toward addressing the bumps and bruises typically encountered in during youth sports training and competition.

Hosted by PSR Publisher Ellis Cannon, this episode of “Get In The Game” features Allegheny General Hospital sports medicine physician Dr. Edward Snell discussing exercise-induced asthma in young athletes.

Dr. Snell, the team physician for the Pittsburgh Pirates, explains how exercise-induced asthma manifests itself, and how parents and children can monitor and control this relatively common medical problem to lead an active life in athletics.

When it comes to treating sports injuries, the sports medicine specialists at Allegheny General Hospital are the best in the business. As the official medical provider of the Pittsburgh Pirates, AGH’s physicians are nationally acclaimed for having the “best medical staff” in the game.

And AGH’s physicians provide that same care for amateur and scholastic athletes, as well. To schedule an appointment with a sports medicine specialist at Allegheny General Hospital, call 412-DOCTORS (362-8677).
