    The One Sport Injury.
    Doctors can treat them. Parents and coaches can prevent them.
     

     
     
    Sports are beneficial for kids. But young athletes who play just one sport year-round risk injury from overuse, caused by repeatedly performing the same motions. Adults should make sure young athletes take part in a variety of sports and have time to recover from the demands of highly repetitive activities.

    A large part of my school nurse responsibilities here at Harmony is to
    promote the health of school children through partnerships with the children,
    their families, school staff, community organizations and allied professionals. 
     
    Health is the expression of physical, psychological, spiritual and social well-being.
    When these components are in balance, optimal success can be achieved and learning is enhanced.
