Overuse injuries becoming more common in young children
More and more kids seem to be participating in organized sports at ever younger ages. I know many 3 year olds already playing on soccer teams, and kindergartners involved in football and lacrosse. Also, children are "specializing" in specific sports at younger ages, increasing the risk of overuse injuries.
