Hyland’s: Natural First Aid
By Dr. Trevor Cates
As a mother of three active children, I know how often accidents happen while playing sports or just simply playing in the backyard. Not a summer goes by without my kids experiencing some sort of minor trauma. Children can be particularly susceptible to sports injuries, especially children under the age of eight who tend to be less coordinated and have a slower reaction time than older children. Also, children tend to not judge or assess well the risks of certain situations that can end in an injury.
