About Injuries/Injury Prevention

Bumps and scrapes are inevitable while children develop the coordination and skills required for activities like walking, climbing, or riding a bike. But some injuries are more serious than others and can require special care and attention. Fractured or broken bones are relatively common in childhood, as bones are still growing and getting stronger. Playing a sport, especially a contact sport like football or hockey, can lead to concussions, when the brain is damaged by slamming into the skull. For some injuries, proper safety measure can reduce the risk, like by wearing a helmet when riding a bike.
