Sports injuries to children are real and they can get in the way of an entire season or career.
Here’s what you need to know as a parent of a young athlete:
1) If your child is playing one sport year round, they run the risk of an over use injury.
2) Children’s bones are soft, especially around the growth plates and that can play a major role in an injury.
3) Knowing where to turn early on for advice and treatment can make or break your child’s season or even career.
