AOSSM, AAOS and the STOP Sports Injuries campaign have several tips to share with all parents, coaches and young athletes to help prevent injuries
4. Develop skills that are age appropriate, and increase training gradually. Recent research has shown that specializing in one sport at an early age can actually be detrimental to skill development.
5. Encourage your child or player to rest and take a break, and to speak up if they are in pain or think they are hurt.
Promote injury prevention on multiple levels, including:
Work with local athletic governing bodies to mandate pitch counts and limit number of matches or tournaments played.
Overuse is considered excessive and repeated use that results in injury to the bones, muscles or tendons involved in the action.
1. Immature bones
2. Insufficient rest after injury
3. Poor training and conditioning
