... and burnout in youth sports can have long-term effects.
Cyril's insight:

This article is underestimated. Athletes take for granted how much their bodies can do. What they don’t take in consideration is that there bodies need a certain amount to rest time, especially when high performance is required. Restricting your body from rest can result in cramping, Dangerous muscle tears and many more major injury.

Overuse injuries on the rise in younger athletes

Bumps, bruises - even the occasional broken bone - often come with the territory of high school sports, but another type of injury is on the rise among these athletes.

Cyril's insight:

Your body would appreciate rest for all of the year long athletes out there. My question is, If the body gets a decent break from the sport, will the risk of injury due to over usage go away? It would seem so. I don’t see why a three sport athlete is preferred over a one sport year round athlete. I feel that the three sport athlete would have less rest time in between seasons than the one sport athlete.

Overuse Injuries in Youth Athletes: Why?

1. Athletes are specializing in one sport at an earlier age.

2. Increase participation in year round sport with little to no recovery.

3. Increased frequency of play(practice and games) this increases exposure rate.

4. Training programs are too aggressive. Youth athletes trainined like collegiate or Pro athletes.

5. Poor testing of musculoskeletal system prior to training(Ex. lifting mechanics involved with squat technique).

 

These are a few of the causes that lend to increased frequency of youth athlete overuse injury.

 

I have been a physical therapist for 25 years. http://bauerpt.com in Laguna Hills, CA (BAUER Physical Therapy).

Frequent  injuries are:

ACL tears - increased in female athletes

Stress Fractures - common in spine and lower extremities.

Shoulder instabilities and tendinitis - overhead sports

Concussions - soccer, football, lacrosse.

I realize that the blog title may perhaps be a little bossy. Especially with that capitalized "NOT" near the end of it. I actually contemplated using a little smiley face at the end, to cheer it up...

Cyril's insight:

This article is very helpful to know which exercises are beneficial towards the body and tells you how to do them the correct way to prevent future injury. I didn’t know that Lap pull-down behind the back induces stress on the scaps? I am a baseball player so this information is very helpful to make sure you are getting the most out of the workout and the safe way as well.
