Has anyone's gymnast had lingering significant pain after a fracture or other injury has healed. We've had 2 experts confirm that she is healthy and cleared for gymnastics yet she is still in pain, and can do very little. Any experience with this. She is beyond discouraged, and way too young to have to give up her passion.

A little more info. She has had 2 mris, been seen by two experts, the fracture is clearly healed, ocd has been ruled out twice. She completely rested for over 3 months and has done a significant amount of pt.

How old is she.

Is this "pain" inhibiting anything else in her life.

Could fear be presenting as pain

I’m so sorry that your dd is going through this. Both of my daughters have returned to gymnastics after fractures. They both experienced pain that they had to work through when they returned. They said that they had to learn the difference between “sore pain” that comes from reusing parts of the body that have been inactive, and “injury pain” that tells them that they need to stop what they are doing.

If you don’t think that’s the case for your dd, could it be nerve pain? Is that something her doctors have looked into?
