1. Enroll Your Child in an Organized Sports Club or Team
They will be given training and proper equipment to reduce their chances of being injured. A lot of injuries occur because kids are engaged in “backyard sports” where equipment and rules are nowhere to be found.
Everyone should warm-up before exercising, in doing so it greatly reduces the chance of a repetitive motion injury as well as others. They should also do a few cool down exercises that will loosen the muscles that have become tight while playing.
This is almost a no brainer, but it is surprising how many children get dehydrated on a daily basis. They are so active and don’t have the reasoning to stop doing what they are doing to rehydrate. So be sure to encourage hydration, even if it means stopping them while they’re playing because this can strongly influence the beginning of heat sickness.
Of course injuries aren’t 100% preventable, and in the time of an emergency ER Now has your back. We will take care of your child promptly and with great care. We hope these prevention techniques are helpful, feel free to call or comment below with any questions or concerns.
