    Back fracture/stress fracture recovery

    I’m currently in Xcel silver and I was planning to move up to gold the next season. But, during regionals my back, which had been bugging me all year, hurt so bad that I could barely walk. I pushed through regionals, the whole time holding back tears. This was the only meet all season that I...

    Broken Forearm Recovery

    My 6yr old, level 3 gymnast broke her arm, complete fracture of the ulna and radius, on Aug 27th. She's still in the cast, but I was wondering if anyone has any insight on post-cast healing time. She's finally old enough to compete level 3 and it was a big disappointment for her that she'll...

    Osteochondritis Dissecans- Elbow

    Hi! My 12 year old had surgery for OCD (Osteochondritis Dissecans) in her elbow a month ago. They removed the loose fragments, debridement, and the bone was allowed to bleed out (no microfracturing necessary bc the lesion was deep enough to bleed). The plan is for my daughter to go back to gym...

    Injuries

    My daughter is 7yo and trainning level 4 (to compete fall 2017). She has struggled doing ROBHS independently and required a spot every time she tumbled. In June her group went to the tumble track and she was confident enough to complete the skill independently 10+ times. On her last turn before...

    Wrist Injury:(

    Yesterday I sprained my wrist doing a roundoff bhs bhs. I'm crushed. I think something has been up with it for a while, honestly. Nothing was terribly wrong with my bhs, I think it was just slow enough that my wrist gave out. I am in a splint, and my doctor/coaches/mom have a lot of hope and...

    Talk to me about back problems...

    DD, a 12-year-old level 8, has been having lower back pain. Apparently it started in July, very shortly after getting her boot off after a broken foot. She waited till mid-September to tell anybody. It only hurts when she extends her back, so essentially most tumbling. It doesn't hurt when...

    Dislocated Elbow

    Well, I finally received that dreaded phone call. The Fellows was doing a back walkover and landed wrong. My heart just drops when the phone rings while she is at practice. She promptly informed me I was going to have to get over that because "gymnastics is dangerous mom". So right she is...
