Dr. Tim Maggs has been in private practice for 35 years. He has specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries throughout his entire career.
Dr. Maggs has been an active participant in sports as well, having run 16 marathons, spending many hours on his mountain bike, playing basketball and extensively working with athletes. His wife, Trudy, and four sons, John, Connor, Tim Jr., and Tom, are all actively involved in fitness and a healthy lifestyle. John is a 2011 graduate of the Air Force Academy and Connor is entering his senior year at The Air Force Academy.
In the mid-1990’s, Dr. Maggs, together with 3-time Kenyan Olympian Joseph Nzau, developed a Kenyan training program in upstate New York. The team ran under the name of Team Stick. For 3 years, Dr. Maggs treated and traveled with the 20 plus runners to races all over the country.
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 bio-mechanical exam. This would look at the musculoskeletal system, in detail, and allow these young athletes to begin correcting imbalances, weaknesses and bio-mechanical 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 Bio-mechanics at Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, New York.
