Common Paediatric Sports Injuries

Most common sport injuries in children

Nobody doubts that living an active outdoors life is paramount to all of us. However, it’s easily understandable that making sure that we transmit this lifestyle to our younger generation is essential. The only way to guarantee healthy adulthood is to make sure that our children understand the importance of staying active and carrying out sports activities.

No matter if it is swimming, rugby or golf. Kids must understand from a very early age that sport is not only something fun, social, and entertaining, but it is also a healthy and mandatory thing to do.

As we always say in our blog, in the centre lays the virtue. Our children need to carry out physical activities, but it also must be done carefully. Sports cannot only lead to obsessive compulsive behaviour. Injuries can make our kids suffer extreme pain, frustration or even fear, but they can also put them away from being active. This is why, today we are going to talk about the most common paediatric sport injuries.

Obviously, the most common injuries are related to overdoing a joint, muscle or tendon. This is not applicable only to children, but due to their inexperience or lack of technique, it can be more common than in adults. Dislocations, ligament tears and fractures are among the most common. The most affected areas are often shoulders, wrists, knees and ankles.
