I thought it was proteins, just wanted to make sure, check this link http://www.ultrarunning.com/ultra/9/9_2/nutritional-support-for-s.shtml For the most part NSAIDS, non steroidal anti inflammatories (OTC or prescribed ibuprofens and such) , plus Ice to decrease swelling, then heat for muscle soreness, will all help. Then gentle stretching when it can be tolerated. Hope this helps K

Thanks for your responces. I got the whole RICE thing and nnsaids down. Diet wise we are up on lean protein to help build and support muscle growth. Any ideas on SUPPLIMENTS (Vitamins, Minerals ect) that will help build and repair the injury? He has since bounced right back and is feeling great! Amazing how fast a young body (he's 12) recovers so quickly.
