Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions. It was what made me take him to the doctor in the first place :-)

Was this an ortho who specializes in sports medicine?


Ohio Dad,

It may just be that he needs 6 weeks to completely heal whatever it is, then begin a rehab program after he sees him in 6 weeks. Remember he is only 14.  


However, I do not see the benefit of icing 3 times a day for 6 weeks.
