Sports Injuries in Kids

Dr. Fernando Mendoza, Medical Director of the Emergency Department at Baptist Children's Hospital, explains some of the most common injuries doctors see in kids are overuse injuries of the ligaments and the joints.

He also says kids under the age of 15 or 16 have growth plates and if they have an injury or a pain over a growth plate or over a joint, they need to stop that activity right away and get assessed by a pediatrician or a pediatric orthopedic specialist.
