My 9 yr old daughter was knocked down backwards but didn't hit her head. No visible bruises or swelling. 4days later dark veins n shoulder n neck pain?

She may be manifesting a deep bruise on her shoulder and the neck pain would not be unexpected...You can try homeopathic arnica and see her doc if the neck pain persists.

I would consider some heart rate and blood pressure monitoring as you are adding HIIT into your regimen. And probably discuss with Doc ...Read more
