Young Athletes Should Be Managed Differently from Adult Athletes:
Growing bones and cartilage are susceptible to injuries unlike those of a skeletally mature athlete.
Overuse injuries in young athletes can lead to disability that extends into adulthood.
As young athletes become increasingly skilled and competitive, the injury rates and significance increase.

The Sports Medicine Center for Young Athletes is the first sports medicine program in Northern California to work exclusively with young athletes.
