Is your child getting enough physical activity? Or risking injury by getting too much of one sport?
For too many of our children, today’s sedentary life style poses a serious threat to their longterm health and well-being. At the same time, many of our more active children are drawn into highly competitive sports at early ages, with risk of injury if they don’t receive appropriate guidance about how much is too much. Whatever your child’s patterns of activity, you’ll benefit from the wisdom and experience of Katherine Ites, a physical therapist at Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota, who joins Marti and Erin in this week’s show.
How much vigorous physical activity does your child get in a typical week? How does that measure up to guidelines for healthy living? Please share your thoughts in our REPLY space!
