Injury Management

According to SAFE KIDS USA: http://www.usa.safekids.org/

  • More than 3.5 million children ages 14 and under receive medical treatment for sports injuries each year. 
  • Injuries associated with participation in sports and recreational activities account for 21% of all traumatic brain injuries among children in the United States. 
  • Most organized sports related injuries (62%) occur during practices rather than games. Despite this fact, a third of parents often do not take the same safety precautions during their child’s practices as they would for a game.
  • Overuse injury, which occurs over time from repeated motion, is responsible for nearly half of all sports injuries to middle and high-school students. Immature bones, insufficient rest after an injury and poor training or conditioning contribute to overuse injuries among children. 
  • Children ages 5 to 14 account for nearly 40% of all sports-related injuries treated in hospital emergency departments. The rate and severity of sports-related injury increases with a child’s age.
