Injuries in Emerging Sports

Leah Concannon, MD

case 1
Case 1
  • Competitive cheerleader
  • Pedicle stress fracture
competitive cheerleading
Competitive Cheerleading
  • Lower overall injury rate than gymnastics, but higher catastrophic injury rate
  • Approximately 66% of all catastrophic injuries in high school girl athletes over the past 25 years were from cheerleading

LaBella CR, Mjaanes J; Council on Sports Medicine and Fitness. Cheerleading injuries: epidemiology and recommendations for prevention. Pediatrics. 2012 Nov;130(5):966-71.

pedicle stress fractures
Pedicle stress fractures
  • Many cases of pedicle fracture are associated with osteoporosis, trauma or prior surgery
  • May be more common in cases with contralateral unilateral spondylolysis, or may just have pedicle sclerosis
  • X-rays insensitive
  • Bone scan with SPECT is sensitive, but radiation concerns especially for young athletes
  • MRI may be equally sensitive, and can identify bony edema
  • CT may be better to follow fracture healing, if needed
  • Similar to pars fracture, but even longer rest is likely required (up to 6 months)
case 2
Case 2
  • Parkour
  • Hip flexor tendonitis
  • Free running, art of movement, urban gymnastics, obstacle coursing
  • Injuries
  • German survey: 70% skin abrasions, muscle injury 13%
  • Few case reports
    • Clavicle fx, bilat distal radius fx, distal tib/fib fracture, bilateral calcaneal fracture, multiple midfoot fractures
    • C4/5 subluxation and locked facets resulting in death
  • Beginners may try moves they have seen in videos, without proper training
  • Landings
    • Traditional: toe-heel landing
    • Parkour precision: forefoot only, arms counterbalance movement
    • Parkour roll: shoulder roll in the direction of travel
  • Both parkour landings have shown decreased maximum ground reaction force, increased time to maximum force and lower landing rates than traditional landings
    • This may decrease risk for injury

Puddle DL, Maulder PS. Ground reaction forces and loading rates associated with parkour and traditional drop landing techniques. J Sports Sci Med. 2013 Mar 1;12(1):122-9.

  • Athletes should master moves in a controlled environment with padded landings before trialing outside
  • Many professionals have training in gymnastics or martial arts
    • Amateurs should not attempt high level acrobatics
  • Fractures are the most common reported injury in the literature, but more serious injuries can occur
