If your player says something hurts, pay attention. When I took my son to the doctor because of pain, the doctor totally blew us off and said, "rest it." Months later, we were back in his office and I requested an x-ray. Within a week, we were in an orthopedic surgeon's office. Listen to your kid. He knows his body and knows when something is wrong.

Don't take your kid to your family doc with a sports related injury, either....go ahead and go to a sports medicine specialist and get it treated right.....
Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you,not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"

The above Scripture is from the English Standard Version

Very true. The last football season I did something to my throwing shoulder while running a QB dive (lowered the shoulder for a collision) and after I got up I knew something was wrong. I could barely lift my arm up but due to the intensity and adrenaline from the game I played on. I went to the Emergency Room that Sunday because of the intensity of the pain. The x-ray guy (he deserves no title) took a look at it and told me straight to my face that I was probably just sore from a big hit and to #### it up. I went through about 5 more football games with the same pain in my shoulder which kept me from throwing the ball as far or as hard as before the injury. I still have pain in my shoulder when I throw the baseball and lift weights. I'm pretty sure the pain is more than just "soreness".

Long story short, go to a sports doctor.

What's the hardest to judge are the real young kids.

Oldest was, oh, probably around 5 or 6, and we had ice on the ground outside in Diana... so sneaky thing get my cowboy boots on, and goes slip sliding around outside.... he apparently did something to his back, but didn't say anything.

MUCH LATER... when he was a freshman playing on varsity, he was probably all of 165-175 pounds then, had a 300 plus pounder hit him square in the back with his helmet...I took him straight to Azalea Orthopedic... and he'd been complaining previously, but not as bad, about his back hurting... we just figured it was from him lifting so much weight... and he lifted a ton during his junior high years - not just weights but working at the dairy...

Apparently what had happened, is the third vertebrae (I think that's the right term) from his tailbone, it broke, grew back pointed down and inward... so when he lifts weights and leans back, etc. it's bone-on-bone.....and it still bothers him. So every year, he goes and gets it scanned, it hasn't changed, it's there, and Doc told him he was NOT going to operate on someone that young unless he hurt so bad that he couldn't go to school, work, etc. But at some point, he'll probably have to get it operated on.

Now, the youngest...every week there was something new (seemed like).....his problem was because he was growing so fast, getting bulked up so quick, was tearing muscles like crazy.....since he graduated, there hasn't been anymore. I've personally never seen anybody pick up the kind of stuff he can...blows my ever living mind!!!
