Kids love playing sports—so much so that over 21 million children in the US between ages 6 and 17 play an organized sport. And even more play sports on their own, during recess, after school, etc.

 

With all of that activity, it’s no surprise that there are millions of sports-related injuries each year. While some are minor, many are serious—landing almost 3 million US children in the emergency room every year for sports or recreation-related injuries.

Adelle's Story

Five minutes into her soccer game, Adelle Levi’s shot was intercepted by a defender, causing her to fall directly on her arm. She knew right away that it was broken. Luckily, Adelle’s family knew exactly where to take her for care, having seen Dr. Bowen for a previous injury. Dr. Scaduto examined her arm and determined that it was broken in two places. She wore a cast for 10 weeks and received multiple x-ray evaluations at OIC’s Luskin Children’s Clinic. While her injury kept her away from sports during that time, the 12 year old occupied her time by focusing on her other interests. In addition to being a member of an academic decathlon team, Adelle enjoys cooking and trying out new restaurants.
