Sports injuries can be a positve thing

Part of sports medicine is to find out what other aspects of the game a young athlete can practice without further aggravating an injury. Ex: If athletes have an elbow strain and play base/softball, they can practice fielding, catching deep flys (both without throwing), bunting, one handed swinging etc. To keep the morale up of injured athletes, tell them they can come back a better player/athlete even thou injured. There’s always something an athlete can practice with most injuries. It’s a great time to work on weaknesses. I’ve practiced this for years, injuries can be a blessing in disguise for a young athlete…if you know what you’re doing.
