Coffee, Kids and Sports Medicine: Common Injuries in Less Common Sports

This Coffee, Kids and Sports Medicine presentation covered an important but often overlooked topic – common injuries seen in less common sports. Pediatric sports medicine physician and expert Jacob C. Jones, M.D., RMSK, shares must-know information about treating injuries in athletes participating in unique sports.
The most common sports Scottish Rite patients play are soccer, football, basketball, baseball and volleyball, but we see patients from a wide variety of different, less common sports such as:
  • ​Gymnastics
  • Dance/Drill Team/Ballet
  • Cheer/Tumbling
  • Softball
  • Track & Field
  • Tennis
  • Swimming
  • Running/Cross County
  • Wrestling
  • Lacrosse
  • Martial Arts
  • Ice Hockey
  • Golf
  • Equestrian Activities
  • Figure Skating
  • Rugby
Young athletes experience injuries in the big five sports, but we’ve dialed in and examined the injuries you’ll see from less common sports, including lacrosse, swimming, ice hockey, figure skating, wrestling and​ golf that contribute to injuries in young athletes.
Jones looks at specific sports like lacrosse and examines the injuries associated with each individual sport. The presentation covers what to look for when treating young athletes and tackles less common conditions including thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) seen in swimmers. With input from other Scottish Rite sports medicine experts, Jones provides clear tips to help prevent injuries and be prepared for significant injuries in particular sports, each tailored specifically to the sports you don’t often hear about.
The program is essential for pediatricians and sports medicine physicians who want to provide comprehensive care to all their patients. Athletic trainers can also benefit from learning vital information about common injuries seen in less common sports.
