Celebrate National Youth Sports Safety Month in April
The weather is warm, the sun is out, and kids are starting to hit the field for spring sports season. So April is a great time to recognize National Youth Sports Safety Month.
While sports are a great way for kids to stay active, be fit, and build teamwork, it’s also important to stay safe. Every year, more than 20 million American kids participate in sports. But nearly one million will suffer a serious sports-related injury. Strains, sprains, and fractures are the most common injuries in kids.
So if your child is participating in youth sports, be sure to make yourself—and your child—aware of all the proper safety issues and procedures.
Call Upstate Bone and Joint at 864.850.BONE (2663) to schedule a visit to discuss any youth sports injury concerns you may have with one of our physicians.
