We're seeing a growing problem with kids.  More overuse injuries.  Children are taking more and more advantage of sports, but they're playing to a level where the overuse is causing problems.  These problems actually can cause a great deal of pain and injury and long-term damage.  It's very important that kids play sports and they exercise, but it's in the proper amount.  What we're seeing in our society now is some kids who play nothing and other kids who overwhelmingly play too much.  We have to be careful.
