Athletes run the risk of injuries due to overuse if they are active in a single sport year-round. TCO doesn’t just focus on orthopedic surgery and recovery; it also emphasizes cross-training to make injury prevention part of the training plan.
Recommendations to help young athletes remain injury-free include:
Appropriate rest periods for growing muscles
Mixing in different activities to avoid overuse of the same body parts
Rehydration and replenishing periods
Allowing recovery time for maturing and growing tissues
