Sideline management from head to toe of the skeletally immature athlete

Christian M. Schupp, Alysia Bedgood

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Many articles have been written on specific injury patterns and types of injuries that occur in sports, but few have addressed sideline management with a specific focus on the injuries affecting skeletally immature athletes. This article will review the most common injuries that can occur with the skeletally immature athlete from head to toe in comparison to a skeletally mature or adult athlete. It will address also how to approach these injuries from a sideline and sports medicine perspective, thus providing insight for health care professionals to evaluate and treat young athletes that could allow them to return to sports safely.
