Is it normal for girls to have back to back injuries? My daughter is training level 9 (almost 13 years old) and over the past 6-7 months she has had 3 foot injuries, 1 hip injury, 1 back injury and 1 finger injury. None of the injuries are major. Three were overuse and three were from falls (usually sprains and one minor fracture/ankle sprain). However, she can't go more than 3 weeks without getting injured and some of them overlap. Between late May and July she did grow 1.25" but she's very small for her age. She hasn't grown any more since then so I thought the injuries would slow down. She was told that she has tight hips and shoulders but she has been working on that. I'm just at a loss at this point and willing to try anything. She broke her foot last week and I asked her if she wanted to quit and try something else but she's 100% against leaving gymnastics. Any ideas or suggestions? Has anyone gone through this before?
