Young Lacrosse Players Face New Injury Risks
Date:4/3/2013

Carmel, NY (PRWEB) April 03, 2013

It can get sprained or torn when an athlete sprints, pivots, or plants a foot, all of which are standard moves in any lacrosse game.

This is news, he explains, because ACL tears were all but unheard of in children before now. In the days before there was a lacrosse league in every town, a child who sustained a twisting fall or other trauma to the knee joint typically would fracture his or her tibial spine, the small bone that extends fro
