Cheerleading Injuries

There’s more to cheer than dancing and pom-poms. As you’ve probably noticed at football and basketball games, cheerleading has evolved beyond the herky, to stunts and gymnastics moves that look cool, but can also be extremely dangerous. In fact, the number of cheerleaders admitted to hospitals for an injury nearly doubled between 1990 and 2002 according to a 2006 study published in Pediatrics.

To help protect you from an unnecessary injury, we’ve broken down some of the most common cheer injuries, explain how they can hurt your body permanently and provide you with some tips to safeguard yourself (and your best bud on the team).Check out the guide and then quiz yourself on cheer safety. Because being safe while cheering is always a win!
