Pediatric Sports Medicine is an important part of health care. Children who engage in activities like soccer, karate, and skateboarding may have acute injuries such as broken bones, sprains, and dislocations. Many times chronic stress injuries occur, such as fractures, tendinitis, and apophysitis. Examples are "Little Leaguer's Elbow", Osgood-Schlatter's disease of the knee, and Sever's Disease of the foot. Treatment of these injuries is usually simple and seldom requires surgery.
