Keeping Kids Fit: Unintentional injuries deserve our attention

The party stopped and the conversation started when an insurance company ran an ad during the Super Bowl that was voiced by a child who had lost his life. We don’t know how he died, exactly. Was it a drowning? Was it by swallowing cleaning fluid or medicine? Was it from a furniture tip-over? All we know is that it was an injury.

Soccer injury may need pelvic X-ray or MRI for correct diagnosis

Q. I am a 16-year-old soccer player who hurt my right hip kicking a ball about a month ago. I rested it for two weeks and when I went back to play it happened again even worse.
