What winter recreational activity results in the most bone fractures in children?

  • Hockey
  • Skiing
  • Ice Skating
  • Snowboarding correct

    An April 2013 study in Norway showed that nearly one-third of pediatric fractures occurred during sport or recreational activity. Snowboarding is the highest causative factor in activity-specific fractures. The rate of fractures in snowboarding was four times the rates for soccer and five times higher than the rate of fractures associated with trampoline use. Fractures from snowboarding tended to involve the wrists, and the majority suffering injury were not wearing wrist guards. Source: Newsroom.AAOS.org
