So this past week while doing a middle school football game with Bre a player went down with a knee injury. Initially we thought he had a very serious knee injury based on his reaction to the pain he was in but after getting him off the field and calming him down his pain level was significantly less. He then told me that all his pain was more medial, not all over like he originally said. Then I had him do some functional tests like running to see how it felt after sitting out for a few minutes, he said he wasn't in as much pain as before and he was full weight bearing and wasn't favoring the injured leg at all so he went back in and was fine for the rest of the game. This occurrence showed me that you just have to be patient sometimes when an athlete gets injured because in this situation the athlete was overreacting at first because he was scared. So when working with athletes kids around that age patience is key, don't jump to conclusions too quickly seeing that my on field assessment was completing different than my off field assessment.
