Gymnastics is one of the most demanding sports on a young athlete’s body. The sport requires hours of dedicated training with little break throughout the year.

Girls train on 4 events and boys train on 6 events. The training requires rigorous skills training, strength, and conditioning. With the amount of training that is required, aches and pains are a common occurrence with gymnasts. It is important that these aches and pains are addressed early before they become injuries that may impact a gymnast’s career.

Common Gymnastics Injuries Include;

ACL tears
Wrist Sprains
Ankle Sprains
Back pain
Spondylolisthesis/spondylosis
Achilles tears/tendonitis
Labral Tears
Fractures
