New Research Looks At The Causes And Most Common Types Of Broken Bones In Children

Other Key Findings:

  • The mean age of all fractures was 10, and there were more fractures in boys (61.7 percent of all fractures).
  • Winter activities causing the most fractures per weekly hours of exposure were snowboarding, followed by playground use, ice skating and team handball (European).
  • High fracture activities in the summer months per weekly hours of exposure were team handball, followed by skateboarding/rollerblading, soccer, and playground and trampoline use.
  • Soccer has the highest rate of fractures overall, when not accounting for hours of exposure, followed by playground, bicycle and trampoline use.
  • Snowboarding is associated with a highest rate of wrist-specific fractures compared with other activities. Most of the children suffering wrist injuries while snowboarding were not wearing wrist guards.

"Our study indicates what childhood activities give the highest risk of fracture per time exposed to the activity," said Dr. Randsborg. "The findings will be useful in identifying which activities that should be targeted for further studies regarding the implementation of effective preventive measures, so that children might continue to be physically active while reducing the number of preventable injuries."
