Young Athletes: Injuries And Prevention

Published Thursday 9 August 2012

High profile events like the Olympics bring the hope that witnessing and
celebrating dedicated athletes at the top of their game, will inspire
young people to take up sport and physical activities that help them
develop confidence, lead more satisfying lives, and not least, secure
long-term health by reducing their risk for developing chronic illness
like diabetes, obesity, cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

.

But unfortunately, if they don't take appropriate measures, young athletes
can instead, end up in pain, on a different path to poor health, due to
avoidable sport injury.

.

James R. Andrews, a former president of the American Society for Sports
Medicine (AOSSM), said in May this year, the US has experienced a
tremendous rise in the number of young people taking up sport. Estimates
show 3.5 million children aged 14 and under receive medical treatment for
sport-related injuries, while high-school athletes account for another 2
million a year.

.

"This makes sports the leading cause of adolescent injury. Along with time
away from school and work, these injuries can have far-reaching effects,"
said Andrews.
