Injury Risks in Childhood Athletics
(http://ow.ly/2fOv50kpZjJ)

Sports and athletics clubs are a great way for your child to stay physically active and develop fundamental skills when it comes to working in a team and communicating with others. Of course, more physical activity means more chances for injuries.

As an example, children who play soccer are more prone to sprains and strains in the ankle and knee, and may even experience more severe injuries like ACL tears and concussions. Make sure your child understands how to warm up properly to prevent injury and has all necessary safety gear like helmets, shin guards, athletic cups, etc.

There are a variety of prescription medications and products that help to keep the airway free and open to help manage asthma symptoms.

What to Expect During a Sports Physical
(http://ow.ly/soex50kpXnj)

Many sports teams and athletic clubs will require students undergo a sport physical (sometimes called a pre-participation exam) before they're cleared to participate in the activity. These screenings are very important to ensure the safety of both your child and others.

During the typical sports physical, the doctor will record basic diagnostic measurements like height, weight, and blood pressure, and examine your child for the presence of any chronic or acute health conditions that may interfere with their ability to safely participate in the sport or activity at hand.

Raising a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be exhausting and frustrating at times. However, there are plenty of things you can do to help manage symptoms while still maintaining a healthy relationship with your child.

For example, try to avoid giving your child access to foods with high sugar content like unhealthy snacks and beverages. Enrolling your child in a controlled physical activity like martial arts, athletics, or sports may also help.
