Musculoskelatal Injuries Common in Youth Sports

Most of the injuries kids suffer in sports are to their muscles, joints and bones in the form of strains, sprains and fractures. Many are the result of overuse and thus are preventable.

Our goal is to provide comprehensive prevention and treatment information on all of the different types of musculoskelatal injuries kids suffer in sports. But to do that we are going to need your help. If you are health care professional treating these injuries/conditions, we hope you will share what you have learned with the entire MomsTeam community of parents, coaches, administrators, athletic trainers, physicians and other health care professionals.

Please consider writing a blog, contributing an article, posting on and/or hosting a Forum, or becoming an expert. If you know of someone who who has knowledge to share, ask him or her to join the MomsTeam community.

If you don’t find what the information you are looking for in this Center, we also invite you to e mail MomsTeam, or better yet, submit an article pose your question to the MomsTeam community (of which you are an important part) by clicking on the Forums tab at the top of the page to find the appropriate forum in which to ask your question or start a new one. Together as a team, we can make youth sports a safer place for everyone.
