Sports medicine

With over seven million students involved in sporting activities each year at the high school level alone, children are participating in organized sports in record numbers. While the health benefits of sports activities can be substantial, all sporting endeavors come with varying degrees of potential for injury. The risk of injury is particularly high in children and teens, whose bones, tendons and muscles are constantly growing and developing.

In an effort to help address childhood sports injuries Shriners Hospitals for Children — Shreveport offers a sports medicine program. Our program is designed to address the nuances of sports injuries in children, teens and young adults.

Sports-related orthopaedic conditions we address:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
  • Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury
  • Meniscus injuries
  • Osteochondral defect/lesion
  • Shoulder injuries
