Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Heightens Awareness for STOP Sports Injuries.
Utica, NY, September 22, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new article on the law offices website entitled “Let’s Help Our Children Prevent Sports Injuries.” With record numbers of children participating in sports earlier and earlier, Ms. Brindisi Pearlman turns her attention to the need for greater safetly.
Pearlman initially touts the constructive aspects of team sports, writing, “The positive benefits of participation in sports at an early age are well documented. Some of these benefits include greater self-confidence and self-esteem, healthier lifestyle choices that include eating more fruits and vegetables, a lower risk of becoming overweight, greater strength, greater bone density, exposure to positive role models, making friends more easily and higher graduation rates among others.”
She contends, however that, “At the same time, as the participation in sports increases at all age levels, so does the incidence of sports related injuries. The statistics are startling.” Pearlman cites, “More than 3.5 million kids under age 14 receive medical treatment for sports injuries each year. And, according to the CDC, more than half of all sports injuries in children are preventable.”
As Pearlman elaborates, “This growing epidemic of preventable youth sports injuries is leading to a serious issue of unraveling the athletic hopes and dreams of many children. STOP Sports Injuries (Sports Overuse and Trauma Prevention) is a public outreach program created specifically to focus on the importance of safety, as the website states, “specifically relating to overuse and trauma issues.” In addition the site states, “The initiative not only raises awareness and provides education on injury reduction, but also highlights how playing safe and smart can enhance and extend a child’s athletic career, improve teamwork, reduce obesity rates and create a lifelong love of exercise and healthy activity. Our message underscores the problems of overuse and trauma and emphasizes the expertise of our coalition of experts.” (http://www.stopsportsinjuries.org/about.aspx)
As a comprehensive resource, Pearlman writes that the STOP Sports Injuries website is helpful for “parents, coaches, the athletes themselves, and anyone else involved in the community that can help encourage safety and prevent injuries.” She continues adding, “Every single sport is covered from baseball to wrestling, cheerleading to volleyball, basketball to soccer, and football to golf and gymnastics to lacrosse. If it is something your child is involved in, you can rest assured there is information available to help promote safety from experts in each sport.”
