Is your child ready to return to play sports?
Roy Benaroch, MD posted:
After a twisted ankle, bruise, or other sports injury, how do you know when your child is ready to return to play?

All of these criteria should be met:
-No swelling
-Full range of motion
-Normal strength
-Normal ability to play, including stamina, coordination, and the ability to protect oneself from further injuries.

For serious injuries, get a trained professional's opinion.
