Customer Question

How can I help my 15 year old son deal with the anxiety he feels before the start of lacrosse season. He is complaining of a pain in his right hamstring muscle, but admits that the pain is probably in his head, although it "hurts". I'm not sure what to say to him!

Why is your son anxious, or what is your son anxious about?

Has he been evaluated by a physician for this complaint?
