Girls Are More Susceptible to a Variety of Sports Injuries,

.

.

Numerous studies have come out in recent years warning about the dangers of children playing sports.

.

In many of them, a trend prevails: Young girls are more at risk for sports-related injuries.

.

For instance, they are more prone to concussions and ankle impairments.

.

Children who play soccer, football, basketball, and lacrosse are at greater risk for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, and the rate is higher in girls, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia reports.

.

A recent study from Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Ohio looked at childrens soccer injuries in kids aged 7 to 17 over a 24-year span.

.

During that time, there was a 78 percent increase in soccer-related injuries treated in hospital emergency departments.

.

Girls were more likely than boys to incur knee or ankle injuries.

.

Youth sports are on the rise, as are overuse injuries from specializing in one sport, noted Dr. Elizabeth Matzkin, chief of womens sports medicine at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston.

.

She told Healthline that half of those injuries could be prevented.

.

Females are often hurt more often than boys due to lack of neuromuscular strength training, she explained. Females tend to have decreased neuromuscular control at the hip resulting in landing with their knees in a valgus position or knock-knee position. This puts them at risk for injuries such as ACL tears.
