Every three minutes, a child is treated for a sports-related injury, according to Safe Kids Worldwide. The organization reports that in 2012, 1.35 million children were taken to the emergency department for these kinds of injuries.

While it is important that children remain active, it is equally important that they do so in a safe manner. Many common injuries like ACL tears, dehydration along with muscle tears or sprains can easily be prevented. Since April is National Youth Sports Safety Month, it’s the perfect time to remind yourself and your children about the best ways to stay safe while playing sports this summer.

In the video below, Anthony Crifase, a chiropractic medicine intern at National University’s Whole Health Center, offers tips that coaches, parents and kids alike can put into practice. He discusses how to perform proper technique, warm ups, how much to rest, and hydrate, along with the importance of cross training.
