Each year, millions of children are injured due to their participation in sports and fitness activities. The good news is that many of these injuries can be prevented with proper education and utilization of the various safety resources now available to parents, coaches and pediatricians.

Dr. Raphael Longobardi of the University Orthopaedic Center, P.A., in Hackensack, NJ, cautions all parents, coaches and pediatricians of young athletes about the importance of education that is designed to avoid potential injuries to young athletes. "Whether you're an athlete, coach or concerned parent, it's important to understand ways to prevent and manage any form of athletic injury should it occur," notes Dr. Longobardi. He also stresses the "importance of being aware of new or recurring injuries that can be brought on by overuse, and cautions that the most common athletic injuries are caused by simply "overdoing it."

Dr. Longobardi, a member of the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine (AOSSM) would like to take this opportunity to direct all concerned parents, coaches and pediatricians of young athletes to informative sites sponsored by the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation at www.nyssf.org and the AOSSM at www.sportsmed.org.
