Pediatric sports specialist Dr. Brooke Pengel talks about kids and sports injuries, including the most common injuries, best practices for treatment, and most important things parents and coaches can do to help keep kids safe.
Top 3 Takeaways:
- The most important thing for parents to say to their athletes is: “I really enjoyed watching you play.”
- The sports journey is the athlete/child’s journey, not the parents’ journey.
- Specialization is not all bad, but it risks a lot of injuries and there are lots of reasons for putting it off as long as possible.
