Concussions- A note from Floating Hospital- Our Sponso

Dear Families,

As the parents and guardians of kids, you know that happy, active kids endure the occasional bumps, bruise or twisted ankle – often right in your own backyard!

Add sports into the mix, and there’s a higher likelihood your child might sustain an injury. So today our sponsor, Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center and their Chief of Pediatric Neurology, Dr. John Gaitanis, have some information parents should know about one important type of injury – concussions.

 

Conversations about concussions are everywhere these days. Why all the hype now?

Concussions have always occurred, but recent research tells us there’s a lot we don’t know about them. For example, even though most concussions fully recover, repeated concussions aren’t always benign and can result in permanent injury. As we learn more, we want to be hyper aware of concussions.

 

Who is at highest risk for sustaining a concussion?

Overall, the risk increases with the level of play. But that doesn’t mean young kids don’t get concussions. Younger children have softer brains and reduced neck strength compared to older children—factors that increase the risk of concussion in younger athletes. Fast paced, contact sports, like football, hockey and soccer, have higher risk than slower paced non-contact sports, like baseball and softball.

Surprisingly, girls are at a higher risk for concussion than boys of the same age, in the same sports. Doctors and researchers believe this might be because girls have less neck strength than boys, so they do not sustain the impact as well.

What happens if my child gets a concussion?

A concussion occurs when a person gets hit on the head – or hits their head – hard enough that their brain moves within their skull. As a result, the brain has a hard time keeping up with the all the demands our bodies place on it – which results in concussion symptoms.

What are those symptoms?

Immediately after impact, your child might experience:

  • Headache

  • Confusion

  • Memory Loss

  • Unstable gait/walking

  • Difficulty focusing vision

  • Loss of consciousness (not necessary for it to be a concussion)

If your child doesn’t have those immediate symptoms, but they occur within a day or so, they still “count” as concussion symptoms.

 

When should I bring my child to the doctor?

If your child has any combination of the above symptoms, see a doctor. If you have any question about whether or not they should be evaluated – a call to your pediatrician is always the right choice.

If your child didn’t see a doctor following an injury but is having ongoing symptoms like a headache, it’s still worth seeing a doctor. It’s really never too late.

How soon after a concussion can my child go back to their regular activities?

After a concussion diagnosis, your doctor will likely prescribe physical & mental rest. This will allow your child’s brain to keep up with its energy demands and recover sooner.

“Rest” consists of taking a break from sports and limiting physical activity, as well as limiting mental activity – like video games, homework, watching tv, texting or reading – as all of these activities may worsen symptoms and make it harder to recover. Once the symptoms are gone or have decreased, your child’s pediatrician will help you slowly reintroduce activities.

Preventing Injuries- a note from Floating Hospital at Tufts Med

At Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center, we love to see kids participating in sports – especially when it helps them get outside after a long winter. Not only does playing a sport set children up for better physical health now and in the future, but there are several social, psychological and academic benefits that come from playing sports as well.  And in a perfect world, those sports are played injury-free. But 3.5 million kids under the age of 14 are treated for sports injuries each year, so that’s clearly not the case.

There are a myriad of reasons why young athletes get injured so often, including

  •  immature bones
  • not getting sufficient rest after an injury
  • inadequate training or conditioning
  • focusing on one sport too soon

However, there is good news – many of those injuries can be prevented. A majority of athletic injuries are overuse injuries – injuries to bones, muscles or tendons due to excessive or repeated use.  Overuse injuries children might encounter include: shin splints, Patellar tendinitis (in the knees), Achilles tendinitis, muscle strains in the groin, thigh, and calf, and stress fractures.

Many times, these overuse injuries go untreated in young children, because they begin with complaints about minor aches and pains that you might hear about on a day to day basis. And at first, they may not affect your child’s performance or ability to participate in sports. However, it’s important to give weight to these complaints, just in case they’re indicative of a larger problem.

So, how can you prevent overuse injuries in children?

Delay sports specialization in younger children.

  • Children who participate in a single sport year-round are more susceptible to overuse injuries due to repetitive use of the same muscle groups, and the associated wear and tear on tendons and bones.
  • Participating in a variety of sports allows for more balanced development of muscle strength and flexibility without excessive strain on isolated muscle groups.

Rest, but not too much.

  • Children should generally take at least one season off per year.
  • In the off-season, children should stay active through other recreational activities.
  • Prior to the start of the next season, gradually increase the duration and intensity of activity levels over the course of 6-8 weeks.
  • Increasing the intensity or duration of exercise too quickly increases the risk of stress fractures.

Train correctly during the season

  • Make sure athletes stay hydrated with plenty of water before, during and after exercise. This is especially important as outside temperatures increase.
  • Ensure teams are incorporating dynamic warm-up (jogs, high knees, lunges, toe touching, etc.) before practices and games, and static cool down (stretching) routines after.
  • Complete proper strength training routines.
  • Maintain proper nutrition for performance;  In general, incorporating carbohydrates prior to activity helps to provide fuel the body needs (i.e. toast, PB&J, fruit, oatmeal), and including protein in post-activity meals helps to build and repair muscles (i.e. lean meats, fish, vegetables).
  • Maintain healthy conversations about the importance of rest and recovery for building strength and endurance.

Playing sports and being a part of a team are an important part of childhood that provides endless benefits to your children, but it’s important to stay informed about how athletics affects your child’s developing body  If you have specific questions concerning your child and sports injuries be sure to talk directly with your child’s pediatrician or contact Floating Hospital’s General Pediatrics Practice at 617-636-5255 or our Department of Pediatric Orthopedics at 617-636-7920.

DYS- Winter Updates

WINTER UPDATES

Hello DYS Families,

I wanted to update everyone on what is happening during the off-season at DYS. 

1.            Training- We have started a new Winter Clinic at Compete Indoor in Norwood.  This is a state of the art Turf field that will help our children progress their soccer skills during the off season.  These clinics will be run by professional coaches with a vast background in teaching soccer.  If you have not signed up yet, I encourage you to do so before the second session is filled.  They will be held on Saturdays 5pm to 6:30PM starting on February 24th (more information at www.Dedhamsoccer.com )

2.            Professional Coaching- DYS has hired 2 professional coaches from Challenger Sports to help with our training program this Spring.  We are very excited to launch this new initiative to step up our level of play and have our children AND coaches learn from these new coaches.  One coach will be devoted to our Little Kickers thru 2nd grade town program and the second coach will work with our 3rd thru 6th grade travel program.  We will also be hosting special sessions for grades 7 thru 8 and older.

3.            Winter – Indoor teams.  We had 3 teams participate in indoor leagues in Canton, MA with great results.  Next year, we are looking to add even more teams.

4.            Travel Teams update:  We have met with the Travel coaches about the registrations for the Spring season and discussed the team formations.  This was a complete group effort with all involved and decisions were made together for the best interest of all the children.  Teams will be announced by the coaches on Wednesday, February 28th for all teams EXCEPT 8th Grade boys as we are still working on finalizing rosters/coaches.  If you have not heard from your coach (and are registered) within a few days of this date, please let me know.

5.            Fun Activities:    Revs night is fast approaching.  Mark your calendars NOW…Dedham Youth Soccer “Night at the Revs” will be Saturday, May 12th at 7:30PM vs the defending champions Toronto FC (featuring Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore).  The coaches will be taking orders for tickets as soon as practices start.  If we get to 200 tickets sold, DYS will help sponsor a family friendly tailgate before the game. 

6.            Town update- the deadline to register is March 1st.  Please visit the DYS website to register.  The end of year picnic is starting to take shape for Nobles.  More details to follow.  We are hoping to have more sponsors, booths, activities than ever before.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

7.            DYS Board- 10 members of the board attended an all day Workshop sponsored by the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association.  Topics ranged from referee training, Positive coaching, development of US Soccer and more.  It was a positive learning experience for the members in attendance.
