Health Tip: Recognize Overuse Injuries in Kids

-- Children who frequently play sports may be at risk for an overuse injury.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says it may be a red flag if your child demonstrates:

  • Pain that gets worse with activity. The pain can't be linked to a specific injury.
  • Swelling.
  • Loss of interest in sports practice.
  • Change in form or technique.
