Emergency rooms across the U.S. say they treated nearly half a million children for soccer or basketball related injuries in 1994, 32,000 for hockey related injuries and another 30,000 with injuries sustained in gymnastics.(4) Million more children suffer from spinal injuries, known as subluxations, that are never examined or identified and can cause severe health problems.
