When your children play sports in school, intramurals or just hanging out with friends in the park there is always a risk of injury. Sports are generally a positive and productive activity for kids, so all that you can do as a parent is to take necessary precautions and have any potential issue addressed as soon as they occur. Learn what to do if your child suffers a sports injury from the professionals at KidsHealth Pediatrics.

Common Sports Injuries

Kids are often prone to injuries while playing sports because they haven’t yet learned the proper techniques and don’t fully understand the risks of playing rough. Common sports injuries that occur in children include:

  • Ankle and knee sprains.
  • Concussions from hitting their heads.
  • Achilles Tendonitis.
  • Stress fractures in the feet.
  • Arm or finger fractures.

When a Child Is Injured

As a parent, it’s important to keep a close eye on your child, as they don’t always tell you when they’re in pain. Sometimes coaches and teammates will encourage them to play even when they’re hurt to prove their toughness, but that’s not a good idea. It’s important to have their injuries seen by a Scottsdale child health care doctor as soon as possible. The sooner treatments are administered, the better the chance of fast healing—kids tend to “bounce back” quickly.

Preventing Future Injuries

Prevention is the best medicine! There are precautions that you can take to help your child avoid injuries when playing sports:

  • Ensure that he or she has the proper gear suggested by the sports program (such as helmets, knee pads and supportive sneakers), and spare no expense.
  • Have the child’s feet and hands wrapped as needed.
  • Encourage the child to stretch thoroughly before playing and take breaks when needed.
  • Bring your active child in for regular checkups at the pediatrician’s office.
