Are Trampolines Safe?

New ARRS Study Says “No”

This summer, keep an eye out for your little ones as trampoline injuries are on the rise according to a recent report by the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS). The study highlights a concerning trend of trampoline-related injuries in children, spanning head-to-toe and including fractures, sprains, and even serious spinal and neck injuries.

Here at Capitol Imaging Services, serving communities across Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, we understand the importance of quick and accurate diagnosis when it comes to pediatric injuries. We offer a full spectrum of imaging services, including X-ray, MRI, CT scan, and ultrasound, to help medical professionals effectively diagnose and treat these injuries. Moreover, CIS patients receive excellent imaging without the confusion and higher out of pocket expense associated with the hospital.

Seek Medical Evaluation After a Trampoline Accident

Dr. Kathryn Nutter, a diagnostic radiologist with Capitol Imaging Services, emphasizes the importance of seeking medical attention after a trampoline accident. "Even seemingly minor bumps and bruises can mask more serious underlying injuries," Dr. Nutter says. "Imaging is a valuable tool in the diagnosis of extent of an injury and can direct treatment that is crucial for optimal healing and preventing long-term complications.”

While Capitol Imaging stands ready to provide the diagnostic tools necessary for treatment, we strongly echo the advice of Dr. Gupta, the lead author of the ARRS report: there is no safe jumping on a trampoline. Consider alternative activities that promote exercise and fun with a lower risk of injury.
