Play it safe!

Muscle contusion indicates a direct, blunt, compressive force to a muscle and is one of the most common sports-related injuries.

The majority of contusions are minor and heal quickly, but if they are more severe, they can cause deep tissue damage and lead to complications that may keep an athlete out of sports for months.

As fun as it is, swinging children by their arms puts them at risk for nursemaid’s elbow, a painful injury that pulls and dislocates the child’s elbow. Remember, children's bones are still developing, so it does not take very much force for this to happen.
