Pediatric Sports Injury
Children are often prone to injuries, especially sports-related injuries. Due to their changing bodies during growth, children are at risk of overuse injuries due to their lack of complex motor skills that develop after puberty. Although there are benefits of athletic activity, too much can lead to injury.
Common overuse injuries include:
- Sever’s Disease, pain in the heel from repetitive jumping and running
- Osgood-Schlatter Disease, pain in the front of the knee that usually occurs after a rapid growth spurt
- Throwing injuries
- Stress fractures
- Strains and sprains
