Health Tip: Trampoline Injuries

(HealthDay News) -- Trampolines may seem like the perfect way for children to bounce off excess energy. But if used improperly, they can be dangerous.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says children can be hurt on trampolines by:

  • Jumping and landing the wrong way.

  • Somersaulting and doing flips, and falling the wrong way.

  • Attempting stunts.

  • Striking another person.

  • Falling off the trampoline or onto the frame springs.
