Nowadays, kids are more active and healthy for being involved in sports, but nutrition and body conditioning is often overlooked. This prevents them from giving their best both on and off the field.
“The majority, if not all, sports are good, provided that the child prepares appropriately,” says Timothy Ray, DC, a member of the American Chiropractic Association’s Council on Sports Injuries and Physical Fitness. “Without proper preparation, playing any sport can turn into a bad experience. There are structural and physical developmental issues that need to be taken into consideration before children undertake certain sports.”
Things you need to keep in mind to protect your child from sports injuries:
Proper warm-up and stretching for all the major muscle groups
Strength-training exercises with the proper form
To help your child perform better in sports, you should encourage him or her to:
Wear the proper equipment
Eat well-balanced, healthy meals
Maintain a healthy weight
Drink plenty of water. Hydration is the key to optimal fitness
Drink milk. Make sure your child has enough calcium included in his or her diet
Avoid sugar-loaded, caffeinated, and carbonated drinks
Follow a warm-up routine. Make sure your child's coach includes a warm-up and stretching session before every practice, game or meet
Take vitamins daily. A multi-vitamin and Vitamin C are good choices for the young athlete. Vitamin B and amino acids may help reduce the pain from contact sports. Thiamine can help promote healing. Also, consider Vitamin A to strengthen scar tissue
Avoid trendy supplements. Kids under the age of 18 should avoid the use of performance-enhancing supplements such as creatine
Get plenty of rest. Eight hours of sleep is ideal for a young athlete
