Dr. Smith offers the fol- lowing tips to keep your child injury-free during the upcoming fall sports season. Always warmup before playing. This may seem like the most common-sense advice in the world to us, but warm-up is always import- ant. Make sure your child uses the right protective gear and that it is appropriate for the sport and for your child's age and build. Using pro- perly fitted gea~ such as shin guards for soccer, a hard shell helmet for baseball, and helmets and body padding for ice hockey can reduce the chance of injury. If your player is tired or not feeling well, sit it out. Injuries are more likely to occur during these times Take a day off. Even for the most competitive ath- letes, a day off once a week is appropriate to give mind and body a chance to rest and recover. For injuries on the field, think ice, compression and elevation. Put ice on the affected area (10 minutes on, 10 minutes off), provide compression for areas that are swollen and elevate the injury. nty Schools, called him one of the most ethical men I ever worked with.

"Aside from being concerned about my own health, 1 also want to set a good example for my daughters, so I seek shade and cover up with clothing whenever possible and wear sunscreen every day." Rampone and The Skin Cancer Foundation offer these sun safety tips for those with an active, outdoor lifestyle: Seek the shade, especially between l0 am and 4 pm whenever possible. Schedule training, practices and games for the early morning or late afternoon. . Do not burn. A person's risk for melanoma doubles if Deadline for classifieds is Tuesday noon! he or she has had more than five sunbums over the course of a lifetime. Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sun- knit, dark- or bright-colored fabrics, which offer the best defense. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resist- ant, broad spectrum (UVA/- UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Apply I ounce (2 tablespoons) of sun- screen to your entire body 30 minutes before going out- side. Sunscreen running into the eyes is a perennial con- cem (and an occasional ex- cuse for not wearing any), but the pros have ways of dealing with this: Rampone applies petroleum jelly to her eyebrows, since it keeps sunscreen on her forehead from migrating into her eyes. Reapply sunscreen ev- ery two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. Be careful to cover often-missed exposed spots such as the hands, ears and the back of the neck. Non-steroidal anti- inflammatories like Aspirin, Ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin) and Naproxen-(Aleve) make you. extra-sensitive to the sun. If you use such medi- cations for your aches and pains, be vigilantabout protecting your skin. Rampone knows that the damp weather in London is no excuse to skimp on sun protection. She has said, "The worst days aren't always the ones that are hot and sunny It's the overcast days (up to 80 percent of the sun's UV radiation can penetrate clouds) when you're not thinking about the sun - then you really get burned."
