Sports Medicine and Kids

Castle Connolly MedicalWhether your child is just kicking the ball around the yard or training intensely for the fall season, following basic soccer safety tips will save you a trip to the emergency department this summer. Atlantic Sports Health experts say to always know the type of playing surface and dress accordingly. Wearing cleats designed for natural grass on artificial turf and vice versa increases the chance of ankle and knee injuries. Our specialists also recommend drinking plenty of fluids prior to competition, not just during the game, to avoid heat-related illness. See more soccer safety tips >
