Tips on Treating Children's Sports and Playground Injuries from Swift Urgent Clinic:
We all want children to have a safe, happy athletic experience—whether on the playground at school or the “playing field” on the weekend. When a sports related injury occurs, here are a few tips. If any of the following symptoms are present, the child should be taken to an orthopedic specialized provider without delay:

  • An injured limb with loss of movement or strength.
  • An obvious fracture of the bone.
  • A dislocated joint.
  • Obvious signs of injury to the affected limb. If the risk of serious injury has been ruled out, follow the ‘RICE’ treatment care plan:
  • Rest - Limit use of the affected limb for 48 hours. If an injured leg, use a crutch to keep weight off the leg.
  • Ice - Apply an ice pack or a bag of frozen peas for 15 to 20 minutes at a time.
  • Compression - If the injured joint is an ankle, knee, or wrist, consider an elastic wrap or compression garment to reduce swelling.
  • Elevation - To reduce swelling, raise the hurt limb above the level of the person’s heart.
