BLOG: Time is right to make a major impact on the prevention of youth sports injuries

June 30, 2015

My first Healio.com/Orthopedics blog is to introduce and describe the STOP Sports Injuries program. Under the direction and leadership of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, the STOP Sports Injuries program was developed during the past 4 to 5 years as a comprehensive public outreach program. The program focuses on the importance of sports safety, specifically as it relates to overuse and trauma injuries in youth sports, for some 29 different sports.

The focus of the STOP Sports Injuries program is to reduce injury and highlight how playing safe and without overuse can increase a young athlete’s career, improve teamwork, increase fitness, reduce obesity and create a lifelong love of exercise and healthy activity. When we use the word “STOP,” which is an acronym for Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention in Youth Sports, for this national initiative, we certainly did not want to imply that we are against youth sports. Our emphasis is just the opposite. Our goal is to keep young athletes out of the operating room and on the playing field.
