My 8 year old son has slightly hyperextended his knee two seperate times There was no swelling on either occasion.
The first time he did it he indicated there was pain in his knee and wouldn’t walk around much.
The next day he acted like nothing happened.
The second time was in a soccer game and it must have only been a slight tweak of the knee.
He told the coach he was fine and continued to play.
He is very athletic and my fear is that he is creating more tork on his knee than his young joints can handle.
Is this normal for a child this age to have this happen and should I be concerned that any structural damage has occured to the leg. Any information would be appreciated.
