More and more athletes are getting injured at an earlier age. Read here to find out more from Suburban Orthopaedics
Today more and more children and young adults are participating in sports. While this is an impressive jump in activity level in the younger population, it also makes them more susceptible to injury. With these young athletes focusing on one sport, and playing sports all year round it is more common for them to get hurt. Unfortunately a misplaced common stigma is that children will often fake an injury to get out of practice or injury. While this may sometimes be the case it is not always true and coaches, parents, peers, and doctors need to pay close attention to these young athletes when their bodies are telling them to stop. The Chicago Tribune wrote an article about this specific topic and you can read more here.
