Active play and sports help your child develop physical, behavioral, and cognitive skills that will help them throughout their lives.
Unfortunately, they are likely to get a few bumps and bruises along the way. In fact, recreational activities and sports injuries end up with an estimated 3.2 million children visiting the emergency room each year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
That’s no reason to keep them out of the game. The pediatric sports medicine experts at the University of Miami Sports Medicine Institute are just a phone call away.
