Off-Season Recovery

During the off-season, it is essential for athletes to take care of their body to reset and prepare for their return to play. With the following information as provided by St. Louis Children’s Hospital’s Young Athlete Center, our athletes can train efficiently all year long.

Stretching is an important part of being an athlete. It should be a part of every practice or game varying by sport. Proper stretching and flexibility can help athletes prevent injuries and avoid soreness so your athlete can stay healthy and in the game. For more information on how stretching can be efficiently applied during an athlete’s off-season and how to get into a stretching routine, click here.

In addition, foot pain is not an uncommon complaint in many youth athletes of different sports. Foot pain can vary depending on shoes, activity, or the shape of the foot. Sometimes the pain can get severe and will require more intervention.
