Cheerleading is not for the timid. It’s a high-energy performance sport requiring strength, flexibility and timing. But all those stunts can take their toll — especially on your joints — and even the toughest athlete is no match for a traumatic injury. When mishaps occur, it’s important to seek out the proper medical attention as soon as possible.
Cheerleading injuries are unique. Recent studies show that they tend to happen less often than injuries in other sports, but are more likely to be severe when they do happen. They can also affect any part of your body from head to toe.
