Advances in Sports Medicine and Care of the Adolescent Athlete.
Over the past several decades there has been a dramatic change in the landscape of youth sports. This article provides an overview of sport-related injuries in the child and adolescent populations, looking at changes over the past 10 to 15 years. A closer look at frequently seen injuries, including assessment, diagnosis, and management in osteochondritis dissecans, sprains, fractures, anterior cruciate ligament, and meniscus tears, is provided. Current protocols and screening tools for this population are discussed, including preparticipation screening. The nursing implications in the clinical and community setting are identified, with ways to incorporate this information into practice.
