Why Less is Best for Young Athletes

MATTHEW T. DESJARDINS, MD

DesJardins M.D. with Football TeamEase up and cross-train to prevent overuse injuries, advises youth sports medicine specialist Matthew T. DesJardins, M.D. Such problems can affect muscles, tendons, ligaments and growth plates and commonly plague young athletes who play soccer, football and baseball (pitchers in particular). Cheerleaders, skaters, dancers and young gymnasts who train intensively at young ages are also vulnerable.

Usually resolved with rest and icing, overuse injuries that reoccur or are left untreated can be catastropic, Dr. DesJardins says. Persistent pain for more than two weeks warrants a visit to a specialist.
