Prevent Your Kids from Sports Related Injuries

By J.R. Rogers
J.R. RogersAccording to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, High school athletes account for an estimated 2 million injuries each year.

Since 2000 there has been a fivefold increase in the number of serious shoulder and elbow injuries among youth baseball and softball players.

How does injury occur?

All young women should have access to affordable products and accurate information about taking care of themselves from an early age. (more…)
