Kesto said that most young athletes suffer from overuse, especially baseball pitchers.
A new problem that is being seen more frequently in young athletes is ligament injuries, which can lead to Tommy John surgery.
Kesto suggested giving your young athlete more rest time or allowing that person to play other sports that may target different parts of the body, which can help with speedier recoveries.
