Because children and teens are still growing and developing, they experience different types of sports-related injuries than adults. The Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, Pediatric Sports Medicine Program is dedicated to preventing and treating sports injuries in the growing athlete, or young sports enthusiast.
