For teen athletes, this season brings excitement, challenges, victories, and unforgettable moments. However, it also demands a lot, pushing their bodies to the limit.
In the world of teen athletics, whether it’s football, soccer, cross country, or any other fall activity, pushing boundaries and striving for excellence is a way of life.
It’s the thrill of competition, the drive for victory, or the pursuit of personal bests, and young athletes face exhilarating challenges that can take a toll on their bodies. Without intentional strategic planning, these challenges can lead to issues like carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, torn rotator cuffs, and chronic back and knee pain.
