Just in case any of you want someone else’s opinion of what does and does not work, I have provided a list of other resources besides me 🙂 Injury care tips to help you prevent and recover from. In my experience, many of the players we work with end up getting hurt outside of sports. Some get injured at the school playground and others at the house or the skate park. Accidents are going to happen, so let’s be prepared and know what to do. Note: This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
Helpful links and information for soccer injury care:
Player communication to coaches and parents
Players need to be educated on the importance of injury care.
Communicating to coaches and parents is important, especially if the pain has lasted more than a week.
Pro players talk to their athletic trainers, who then relay the message to the coach. It’s important to let coaches know so they can help protect you from further injury.
Example: If you have pain in a muscle and the coach has plans to do fitness, it would help if they know your condition. This way they can hopefully help you recover [rest, rehab, strengthen].
In conclusion, youth players need to also let coaches and parents know about injuries.
Consult with a physician
*REMEMBER: I am not a doctor. You should ALWAYS consult with a physician or trained healthcare provider before beginning or stopping an exercise and nutrition program.
Make sure you are healthy enough to begin a training program, regardless of age.
Verify with your personal physician any nutritional product, especially if you have diabetes or other special dietary considerations/needs.
