Injuries from Cheerleading

Performing tricks once reserved for trapeze artists are placing more cheerleaders in more peril than any other female athletes in the country. Emergency room visits for cheerleading injuries nationwide have more than doubled after the early 1990s. Some think pushing for more extreme tricks and inadequately trained coaching is the cause of this increase.

The National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research says that of the 104 catastrophic injuries sustained by female high school and college athletes from 1982—2005, more than half resulted from cheerleading injuries and were primarily spinal cord injuries. Furthermore, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported there were nearly six times as many emergency room visits for cheerleaders in 2004 than in 1980.

So the trend is growing. Don’t let your child be a casualty of over confident school faculty members and coaches who don’t put safety first. Contact Seeger Weiss if your family has experience a cheerleading injury.
