    Scoliosis and back pain

    My DD, 14 year old L 9 has been having some mid/low back pain on one side. I took her to get X-rays todays to rule out fracture. Turns out she has scoliosis. The Physician Assistant we saw said that this asymmetry is causing her back pain. Not even sure what my question is. I guess, does...

    For Parents Anyone heard of online school Edgenuity?

    Our school district will be offering this online option to students who continue distance learning next semester: www.edgenuity.com. It is a 6-12 curriculum, NCAA compliant. I'm wondering if anyone knows of it and if it is a rigorous academic educational option?

    For Parents Best strong hold hair products!

    I am looking for good strong hold hair gels and sprays. We have been unable to get my daughter's bun to stay in this season! Maybe it is the harder, faster tricks? It used to work... She is a 13 yo level 9. Recommendations are very welcome!

    Sprained toe recovery / travel meet

    My DD (13 yo level 9) sprained the toe next to her pinky toe when it tucked under on a vault landing three days ago. X-ray confirmed no break and she can walk on it, do trampoline, no problem. It is a little swollen and hurts to tumble/land. Not a big deal injury, but we have a travel meet in...

    For Parents Bra recommendation

    My DDs comp leo doesn't work with many bras as it has a very open neckline and low cut back. A racer cut is totally out. We need something with really wide (as in far apart/closer to the shoulders) straps. She doesn't need a lot of support. More trainer bra stage. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Taking other kids to a meet

    Hi there, I am taking two of DDs teammates to a travel meet. I have paid for a hotel room with the three girls and have purchased flights for the four of us. In asking the other families for reimbursement do you think I should have them each cover a share of my costs (i.e. divide everything by...

    For Parents My rec DD hesitant to move up

    Hi there, My YDD (8) was today invited to move to an intermediate class from her "beginner 3" class. This is fantastic as I need her to move to the new class for logistical reasons (she has a spring soccer conflict with the beginner class). I anticipate that she will not want to move up. I...

    Handling injuries- what I've learned

    This is not intended to be medical advice at all. I am not a medical professional. Just a mom whose daughter is learning to get through injuries as rapidly as she can with less frustration. These are just anecdotes about what has worked for my DD, but I thought sharing this might benefit...

    Training while not weight-bearing on foot

    Hi there, I posted earlier that my DD fractured the third metatarsal of her foot. Dr. said no gym for two weeks as the bone is in four pieces and needs to be treated delicately to come back together. After that, she'll go back and do what she can safely do. Trick is she can not weight bear...

    Ezy ProBrace™ vs. Tiger Paws

    Hi there, My daughter suffered wrist pain for years and it is now under control with Tiger Paws. The coach has asked the girls to switch to the ezywrap wrist support. According to my DD, coach says these are better for maintaining wrist strength in the long run. I'm open to it, but not sure...
