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.
- Loss of interest in sports practice.
- Change in form or technique.
