Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Every day, millions of children and youth participate in sports, and every year more than 775,000 children under age 15 are treated in emergency rooms for sports injuries. The majority of these injuries occur during unorganized sports activities, and adolescents are likely to suffer more serious injuries than younger children because they play harder.
When young athletes sustain sports-related injuries, they can become injured more easily than adults because their bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles are still growing. Their growth plates – areas of developing cartilage where bone growth occurs – are also weaker. Often times an injury to a growth plate may be diagnosed as only a bruise or sprain.
Parents should know how to prevent serious sports-related injuries. Proper education, coaching, supervision and equipment can make the difference.
