Q: At what age should kids start playing sports?

A: I believe you can start your kids at any age. It depends on how mature they are physically and mentally. There is controversy over when should parents let their kids start playing football. Experts say ages 12-14 is a good age to get into full contact football.

Q: What happens when a child gets injured and their body isn't fully developed?

A: If a kid injures a growth plate, this could disrupt thier growth pattern. Say for example a child injures their right arm. It will take about two months for that arm to catch back up to the left arm in length. So the child will be walking around with a longer left arm for a couple of months. Children don't suffer as many muscle injuries as adults.

There are many injuries that a person can suffer in sports and these injuries can sometimes even change your everyday life. Some of the more common injuries are tennis elbow, runner's knee, golfer's elbow and athlete's foot. Even though athlete's foot isn't technically an injury, it can still put an athlete on the sideline and limit them from some daily activities. There are some ways to prevent these injuries, however. These include drinking a lot of water, warming up/stretching, proper technique, using the best equipment, and lots of recovery time.

Tennis is a game where the whole body is vulnerable to injury. Tennis players must make quick movements in all directions to get to the ball, so this puts stress on the lower body. Once they get to the ball, they must swing their racket at the ball to get it back over the net. This in turn, places a lot of stress on the upper body.

(continued from tennis) Some common injuries occur int he shoulders, elbows, knees and wrists.

Volleyball is somewhat like tennis. The whole body is vulnerable to injury because players must run to the ball, then hit it back over the net. Sometimes, this motion may be awkward because they may have taken a wrong angle towards the ball. This sport is played on two surfaces; a hard court and a sand court. Common injuries that occur while playing volleyball are soft tissue sprains, strains, spasms, cramps, and tears.

A sports injury is an injury that occurs during sports or exercise. There are a number of ways that sports injuries occur. For example, some result from accidents, poor training practices, faulty equipment, or bad/no stretching. Physical injuries occur in the musculoskeletal system; meaning the muscles, bones, and cartilage.
Bill Saunders's comment, March 8, 2013 2:20 PM
A ligament is a set of tissues that joins ends of bones with each other. A sprain is a tear or stretch of a ligament. When a person falls or takes a hit to a joint, it can knock it out of place and possibly sever the ligaments around the joint. Strains can be first degree, which is when the ligament is minimally stretched. Or they can be third degree which is a complete tear of the ligament. Places on the body where strains happen the most are ankles, knees, and wrists. Symptoms of a sprain are bruising, inflammation, swelling, or joint looseness.
