Hockey players’ gear can get really smelly within all of their layers of pads and clothing. And while (shockingly) smell may not always get the attention of all young athletes, it’s what’s causing the smell that should.
Each year, countless teenagers participate in high school athletics, so the occurrence of injuries is inevitable. While injuries can be discouraging for the athlete, his or her family and the team, they can also cause long term damage to the athlete’s body, especially if left untreated. To minimize the risk of an injury occurring in the first place, there are a number of things that can be done.
