Kids Sports Injuries - By the Numbers

Nearly 2 Million American kids are taken to the Emergency Room every year with injuries from sports. There are countless more reported and unreported injuries that take place every year on our kid's football fields, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, in our kid's cheerleading and gymnastics squads, and from kids who run for fitness and competition. While youth football produces the largest number of kids’ sports emergency room visits, basketball, soccer, and baseball all follow directly behind. Football has such a reputation as a violent sport, that people are quick to focus on the health and vulnerability of young players who have been injured. If that same kind of attention was placed on soccer, baseball, gymnastics, or even cheerleading injuries, the number of emergency room visits would likely skyrocket.

Is your child dealing with new or nagging sports injuries?

Planet Chiropractic can help start your child’s sports injury treatment plan, help prevent future injuries, and even help them gain a competitive edge on the playing field.

Every Sports Injury Can Impact Your Child

The kinds of injuries that cause the most long-lasting, most severe complications are not always the “Emergency Room” type of injuries. It’s obvious when your child gets a cut or scrape, or even a broken arm. You know your child has been injured, and any good parent will immediately tend to those injuries. If complications are severe from your child’s injuries, you might seek medical attention or even rush them to the emergency room. But the kinds of injuries that may have the most long-lasting impact on your child may be the ones that you, or your child, barely even notice. High-quality Chiropractic Care facilities offer a natural, holistic, non-invasive approach to your child’s sports injury treatment program. At Planet Chiropractic, we specialize in finding the root causes of your child’s new or nagging sports injuries. Our experts can diagnose and begin sports injury treatment for your child. Don’t delay! Call Planet Chiropractic!

Don’t Underestimate the Long-Term Implications of Ignoring Injuries

It would be easy to underestimate the severity of an average, everyday form tackle in youth football that might have knocked your child a little woozy, but they bounced right back up from. It would be easy to brush off the stinger your favorite young football player got when they delivered a solid hit on another player. Maybe the general wear and tear on your favorite young pitcher’s shoulder or elbow is beginning to take a toll on their general wellbeing, but they haven’t complained about it, so you don’t really notice. You haven’t seen your favorite youth soccer player run into the goalpost or be taken out by a hard slide tackle, but perhaps the extreme starts-and-stops or overextended headers from the soccer field are festering into all kinds of knee and ankle ailments. It’s important for parents, guardians, and coaches to help keep our kids safe at all times, both during sports activities and afterward. Whatever nagging or severe pain or dysfunction your child is going through, from whatever sport they play or activity they’re involved in, Planet Chiropractic offers advanced Sports Injury Treatment for your kids!
