Trampoline Injuries Douglasville

Has your child suffered trampoline injuries? Whether you know it or not, your children are in jeopardy every single time they jump. Planet Chiropractic can help your child recover from trampoline injuries.

Trampoline Injuries Victims Are almost Always Under 16

Trampolines can be tons of fun! The bouncing, the flipping, the springboarding of the friends, they can all be the source of constant laughter you might hear coming from the backyard. But one misstep, or one failed trick, and the constant laughter becomes a gasp, or even cries of pain. Of all the different kinds of leisure-time accidents that occur nationwide, perhaps no injury is as dominated by children as trampoline injuries. Nearly 95% of the serious injuries that occur on trampolines involve our kids. Nearly 80% of all trampoline injuries occur when more than one person is jumping. Younger kids aren’t immune to trampoline injuries, either. 1 out of every 6 trampoline injuries are to children under 6 years old, and an even higher percentage of emergency room patients are from these younger kids.

Why Are Trampolines Considered Dangerous?

The mechanics of what makes a trampoline fun to jump on is also what can make it dangerous. It’s obvious that a trampoline gives you the ability to jump higher than you could on your own and continue jumping higher and higher with every jump. When multiple people are on the trampoline, the canvas can be pushed lower than if a single jumper were active. When this canvas is pushed lower, and if the first jumper times their jump correctly, the “springboard” action caused by the tandem jumping can shoot a child higher than they’ve ever been able to go. But it could also shoot them off to the side just as easily. Springing your friends could also lead to twisted ankles and knees, especially if the first jumper is late, and the canvas is already on its way back up. Not even the modern uses of nets on trampolines can keep our kids safe. If your child has structural complications from trampoline injuries, Planet Chiropractic can help!

Trampoline Parks Are Fun - But Can Be Just as Dangerous

Trampoline parks are all the rage right now for active, family fun. Because of the wall to wall, padded trampoline design, these parks can seem like a wonderland to kids. And because they are generally supervised by parents or park employees, it feels somewhat safer than an unsupervised trampoline in your backyard. But this feeling can be deceiving. Trampoline Parks are fun for kids, but they combine some of the most harmful elements about trampolines. The wall-to-wall trampoline canvases spur a higher rate or daredevil activity from most kids. The more friends and strangers there are to impress, the more a child will try to impress them with flips, turns, twists, and high-vaulted bouncing. An increase in general traffic on the trampolines is also part of the heightened danger equation that can result in a higher number of intense trampoline injuries. The sheer number of serious reported trampoline accidents in tramp-parks has risen 10x in the last 4 years alone. If your child loves to jump, and you choose to take them to a trampoline park, be prepared for the possibility of an emergency room visit, doctor visit, or the need for a kids chiropractor.
