Youth Soccer Injury Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment and Rehabilitation

We're no doctors here, but the fact is that many players sustain injuries during the course of their youth careers, ranging from a career-ending ACL injury to a simple strained ligament that keeps a player out for a game or two.

Several readers have asked for this topic to be added, so that conversations and sharing of experiences can be shared.

This is tricky, as we don't want to disparage any healthcare providers on this site but it may help to mention doctors and/or their affiliated practices.

Let's roll it out and see how it goes.

My child is about to start practicing again after an ACL tear. In many aspects, s/he is physically ready to play now, almost five months after surgery. But according to the doctor and from the stats I've seen online, the risk of reinjuring the knee (or injuring the other knee) are much greater if s/he started playing now. However, after the 6 months mark, the chances of reinjury level off, with virtually no difference between that point or waiting 9 months, a year or longer. The current plan is for my child to start non-contact drills starting at 5.5 months post-surgery, start scrimmaging at 6 months and playing games a few weeks thereafter. So when you add in the time from the injury until the surgery, the whole process is about 7.5 to 8 months, or longer if the kid is less dedicated to the rehab program.

I would say the one thing to keep in mind is that one of the biggest reasons for re-tears is muscle fatigue and the muscles not properly protecting the knee. That's one of the reasons why HS is so dangerous for someone coming back. They practice sometimes 6 times a week for 2-3 months straight before the season even starts.

I think this is a real important issue. These players are pushed and pushed to be the best. Who is looking out for them? 90% of the coaches cringe at the idea of losing the star player due to concussion. Kids are encouraged to tape it up or wear a brace. We as parents and coaches MUST be the voice of reason and put personnel glory aside.
I am particularly concerned with the number of ACL injuries we are seeing in youth soccer. I did some digging and it's clear that we need to be much more aware of players wearing the correct cleat for the surface they are on.
Great article at: http://soccerhotspot.com/how-to-avoid-knee-injuries-on-turf-research-says-its-in-the-shoes/

I was surprised how much difference a cleat can make to avoiding knee injuries. Especially in teenage girls. We need to educate parents about this issue.
