The Mayo Clinic reports that all-terrain vehicle use, along with off-road motorcycling, have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, with more and more young people taking up the sports. During the 1970s, United States residents owned an estimated 400,000 ATVs. That number jumped by leaps and bounds by 2009 to 10.5 million. One survey reported 30 percent of residents in one rural state were ATV owners. This burst in ATV popularity meant more children and teens were riding the vehicles, which has increased the number of injuries to that age group. Studies show children younger than age 16 are most likely to be injured during motocross or ATV use.
At Lakeside, we help young people and adults recover from motor sports injuries. Some injuries common to using off-road vehicles are injuries to the extremities, head and spinal cord. No matter what part of your body needs rehabilitation from injury, the team at Lakeside is ready to help you design a rehab regimen to get you back to top condition as soon as possible. To improve safety for those who love these increasingly popular sports, experts recommend programs to bolster safety training and increase the use of helmets and other protective gear.
