Abstract

Scholastic-age sports are generally safe, and major musculoskeletal injuries are uncommon. Injuries are proportional to the athlete's age, size, and type of sport. Significant knee injuries do occur, especially during adolescence, and they require prompt, accurate diagnosis and specific treatment. The team physician plays a major role in injury prevention and management.
