More than 38 million children and adolescents participate in organized sports in the United States each year. Although sports participation provides numerous physical and social benefits, it also has a downside: the risk of sports-related injuries.
In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 2.6 million children 0 - 19 years old are treated in the emergency department each year for sports and recreation-related injuries. These injuries are by far the most common cause of musculoskeletal injuries in children treated in emergency departments.
They also are the single most common cause of injury-related primary care office visits.
Dr. Kenneth Huh shares the most common types of sports injury, the factors and symptoms that contribute and prevention tips for athletes and their parents.
