Sports injury

Children’s and teenagers’ sports injuries

Children's sports injury clinic

Sport is an important part of childhood and adolescence. It does occasionally cause injury, but compared to falls and road accidents it is an unusual cause of serious injury. From the age of about 12 the forces exerted during sport become sufficient to cause fractures and ligament injuries. As the child gets older, injuries more typical of an adult start to occur, notably the meniscal and ligament injuries that occur in the knees. Even so, a child is more likely to have a fracture than a ligament rupture. A child’s ligament will pull off a piece of bone instead. An acutely swollen joint after an injury in a child or young teenager is therefore less likely to be a nasty sprain than a fracture or a dislocation.
