Rah Rah Rhee: Protecting Cheerleaders from Injury

Pump, pump, and pump it up!

According to a national study, 3.5 million people participate in the sport of cheerleading. While it began with uniformed individuals helping to lead an audience into cheering for a team, modern cheerleading incorporates the former with a hybrid of dance and gymnastics. As such, cheerleaders are at much greater risk for injury. 

What Are the Most Common Injuries Related to Cheerleading?

Although injuries from cheerleading are not the most common among female athletes, they make up more than half of the most catastrophic category. Although all parts of the body can be affected, the most common areas for injury in cheerleaders are wrists, shoulders, head, and neck.

What Can Be Done to Prevent Such Injuries?

• A warm-up and cool down routine should be implemented before and after each and every game or practice
• When landing, keep the shoulders over the knees, knees over the toes, and ensure that the knees do not buckle together
• The use of a mat or soft, even surface should be used when learning a new skill
• Keep active during the summer months and the off-season
• Coaches that are experienced and familiar with the rules of the sport can help prevent mistakes that could lead to injuries
• Participants should be trained to spot properly and there should always be a trained spotter nearby any stunt
• An emergency plan should be created and practiced; so that each athlete knows their role should an emergency occur.

In the event that an injury does occur, seek medical attention as necessary. OMNI Orthopaedics is here for you and your athlete.
