In 2004, Dr. Maggs recognized the need for improved diagnosis and treatment of sports related injuries in the middle and high school age group.  It was at this time he developed the Concerned Parents of Young Athletes™ Program. Dr. Maggs goal is to have all middle and high school athletes go through not only the standard medical exam at the start of each season, but also a biomechanical exam. This would look at the musculoskeletal system, in detail, and allow these young athletes to begin correcting imbalances, weaknesses and biomechanical faults long before they become injuries that create disability and premature degeneration. Today, Dr. Maggs works with athletes from more than 25 high schools, and is the Director of Sports Biomechanics at Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, New York.
