Cheerleading Safety Tips to Prevent Injuries

National Cheerleading Safety to Prevent Injuries

Cheering for Safety

Give us an S, an A, an F, E, T, Y!  What do we have? SAFETY! Why are we cheering? Because March is Cheerleading Safety Month, and as always, the staff at Altus Emergency Centers is cheering for your child’s safety.

Cheerleading has come a long way since it’s early days, and it is now a highly competitive and demanding sport, and like with any other sport, cheerleaders are susceptible to sports injuries. There has been a lot of debate regarding the number of injuries sustained by cheerleaders, some claim it is on the rise while others feel critical injuries have diminished in recent years thanks to new safety rules applied to the sport.

ER Treatments for Cheerleading Injuries Altus ER Centers Lumberton Texas

Common Cheerleading Injuries

 

Both are correct, thankfully catastrophic cheerleading injuries have declined considerably during the last decade, however, the number of cheerleader emergency room visits for non-catastrophic injuries has increased, these injuries include:

• Ankle Sprains

• Knee Injuries

• Wrist Injuries

• Shoulder Injuries

• Lower Back Pain, and Concussions

Altus ER Tips to Cheer Safe!

School cheerleading programs must have a certified cheerleading coach managing the program, and there are safety guidelines that must be followed to ensure the wellbeing of the athletes, these include:

cheer safe to avoid common injuries altus er centers texas

Using the Right Equipment

The use of landing mats is not currently mandatory either during practice sessions or performances, but these are recommended.

Most cheerleading-related injuries occur during practice especially when learning new maneuvers, it is advisable to always practice using 4-inch landing mats to avoid serious injuries.

Footgear is an important factor in injury prevention, cheerleaders should wear properly fitting rubber-soled shoes with adequate cushioning and ankle support. Additionally, flyers should consider wearing a cheering vest during practice to protect themselves from bruising and injury.

Choose a Safe Place to Practice

Back in the day when cheerleading was mostly about waving pom-poms and chanting, it was safe to practice out in the open. Because cheerleading now involves advanced acrobatics and gymnastics, practice spaces should be chosen carefully. Never practice on wet or uneven surfaces like grass or turf, instead look for smooth, level, and dry places to practice in which are clear of obstacles that may cause injury.

Stay in Shape

Cheerleading requires a great deal of strength and balance, and therefore athletes should take great care of their fitness all year-round.

Like with any sport it is important not to overdo it, cheerleaders should take time to rest between training sessions to avoid overuse injuries.

Given that cheerleading now requires gymnastic skills, it is not a bad idea to enroll your child in a gymnastics program, this will serve to improve the child’s skills, and confidence which will help prevent injuries.

Cheering for You Altus ER Centers

Stretch, Warm Up, and Cool Down

We cannot stress how important warming exercises and proper stretching techniques are, these have been proven to reduce muscle strain and prevent injuries, however, cool down exercises and after workout stretching exercises are just as important in injury prevention.

Follow Stunt Progression

The saying you need to learn to crawl before you learn to walk applies to everything in life, especially advanced gymnastic sports. Coaches need to ensure cheerleaders learn the basic skills before introducing more advanced movements and stunts.

Altus Emergency Cares About Cheerleading Safety

At Altus Emergency Centers, we applaud the level of commitment and skill being a cheerleader requires, we encourage students to challenge themselves, improve their skills and push themselves to do things they never thought were possible, but, we urge, parents, coaches, and athletes alike to always put safety first.

TRICARE ER Family Care – We Care for Our Military and Their Families

We Care for Our Military and Their Families

The very nature of the job of a military person means they will face daily challenges. However, no service member should ever have to worry about their healthcare needs or those of his family being met, especially during an emergency.  It shouldn’t be a challenge to find TRICARE ER Family Care.

A report by news agency Reuters explains how a study revealed how American families with military healthcare are more likely to experience difficulties with healthcare access.

If you are looking for TRICARE ER Family Care, you’ve found it!  Altus Emergency Centers has been a proud TRICARE provider for many years. We believe our brave men and women in uniform should receive the best emergency medical care possible. That is why all our locations accept TRICARE patients. 

The following are some frequently asked questions to help shed light on TRICARE ER Family Care and coverage for veterans, active military, and their families.

Does Your TRICARE Healthcare Plan Cover Emergency Care?

Yes!

TRICARE emergency care coverage includes professional and institutional charges as well as services and supplies administered or prescribed in the emergency room.

TRICARE is very clear that in the event of a medical emergency, you should call 911 and visit an ER, not an urgent care clinic.

Moreover, emergency room care does not require prior authorization. However, TRICARE Prime plan members must contact their primary care provider within 24 hours or the next business day after receiving emergency care at one of our ER centers.

What Does TRICARE Consider an Emergency?

TRICARE covers three types of medical emergencies:

 

Medical Emergency

TRICARE defines a medical emergency as the sudden and unexpected onset of an illness or injury or the worsening of a chronic condition that:

  • Is life-threatening, 
  • Could cause the loss or severe impairment of a limb or eyesight
  • Requires immediate medical attention
  • Manifests painful symptoms requiring medical care to alleviate suffering

 

These are some examples of medical emergencies covered by TRICARE:

  • Cardiac Arrest (No pulse)
  • Injuries with Severe Bleeding
  • Spinal Cord, Neck or Back injuries
  • Severe Chest Pain
  • Severe Eye Injuries
  • Broken Bone
  • Trouble Breathing

Maternity Emergency

A maternity emergency applies to any circumstance that results in a medical complication which puts the mother or baby at risk.

 

Mental Health Emergencies

TRICARE patients diagnosed with a mental disorder can visit our ER when they are thought to be a risk to themselves or others.

Emergency room care does not require prior authorization. However, if the patient is admitted to the hospital as a result of their psychiatric emergency, the incident must be reported to the regional contractor within 24 hours of admission and no more than 72 hours after admission.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Are Pediatric Emergencies Covered?

TRICARE offers several healthcare plans some of which include benefits for family members including children.

  • TRICARE Prime: This is available to active duty and retired service members and their families
  • TRICARE Select: Active duty and retired service members and their families as well as active and non-active reserve, and retired reserve members and their families are eligible
  • TRICARE For Life: Available for beneficiaries who have Medicare Part A and B
  • TRICARE Reserve Select: Intended for members of the Selected Reserve and their families. Recipients must meet certain qualifications
  • TRICARE Retired Select: Available to qualified Retired Reserve members and their families
  • TRICARE Young Adult: This plan is for unmarried or adult children of an eligible sponsor. Beneficiaries must be at least 21 years of age and no older than 26

 

For more information on TRICARE healthcare plans, please visit: https://tricare.mil/Plans/HealthPlans

 

TRICARE members can trust their children’s emergency care to us. All our Emergency Centers have certified pediatric emergency physicians and nurses on staff 24/7 to attend pediatric emergencies. We also provide separate, dedicated pediatric examining rooms and equipment.

At Altus Emergency Centers, we strongly believe the members of our military deserve the best. We provide them the peace of mind of knowing their loved ones are safe and cared for with compassion by professionals who care. 

For this reason, we provide the best emergency care to all members of our military branches and their families.

Texas Parks to Visit and Recreation Safety Tips to Enjoy

Texas Parks to Visit and Recreation Safety Tips to Enjoy

Let’s Learn About Park and Recreation Safety

In celebration of National Parks and Recreation Month, Altus Emergency Centers is challenging the community to improve their quality of life by going out and enjoying one of the many parks around their city. The best way to plan out a great time outdoors is to first learn about park and recreation safety.

Spending time outdoors promotes a healthy vibrant community life, whether it’s summer camp, a sports league, exploring a trail, playing chess in the park, or organizing play dates for the kids; parks are the perfect gathering place.

To ensure you experience a safe outing, we have prepared a handy list of Park and Recreation Safety Tips to keep in mind!

 

National Parks & Recreation Month: Keeping it Safe and Fun

Playground Safety Tips.

The most common summer activity is a trip to the playground.  The following park and recreation safety tips are important to keep in mind during your visit the the playground:

  • Wear Proper Shoes: Make sure your kids footwear is adequate to play and run, never let your child play barefoot at the park as they may be bitten by insects, step on a thorn or small rock or burn their feet on hot surfaces.
  • Watch Out for Hot Surfaces: During summer, slides, swings, monkey bars, merry-go-rounds and even picnic tables may become overheated by the sun, so, always check the surface temperature.
  • Stranger Danger: Teach your children not to speak or follow adult strangers, and to immediately run towards you or someone they know to report the incident. While not everyone has bad intentions, it is best for kids not to engage in conversation with adults they do not know.

Hiking Safety Tips

Hiking is an excellent acivity for all ages.  You may choose the pace and distance that you wish to hike and enjoy the scenery during your voyage. The following park and recreation safety tips are important to keep in mind when planning on your next hiking quest:

  • Tell People: Always inform friends and family the route you’ll be taking and how long you expect to be gone; if possible always travel with a companion.
  • Carry ID: Make sure to carry some sort of ID that includes your name, phone number, address, pertinent medical information, and emergency contact information.
  • Carry a Whistle: This will help scare wild animals or signal for help should you be injured.
  • Plan Your Route: Become familiarized with a trail before you head out, do not venture into unknown hiking trails by yourself.

Camping Safety Tips

If you’re a woodsy person at heart, camping is wonderful to replenish the mind and spirit.  It is particulary important to heed the park and recreation safety tips while on your home in the wilderness away from home.

  • Stay Away from Wildlife: Clearly one of the joys of camping is to commune with nature, but, it is better to enjoy the wildlife from afar. If you do come face to face with a wild animal, regardless of if it’s a bear or a squirrel do your best not to disturb them, this will keep you out of trouble and possibly a visit to one of our centers.
  • Respect the Fire Rules of the Park: Most parks that offer camping sites have clear rules when it comes to camp fires, make sure you find out what they are and that you respect them. Unattended or poorly managed campfires have been known to start wildfires that can destroy thousands of acres, kill wildlife, and endanger human population as well.
  • Store Food Carefully: Again, check the food regulations with park officials before you set out on your camping trip. Food should be properly stored for several reasons, preventing food poisoning while camping and, avoiding a close encounter with dangerous animals.

General Park Safety Tips

No matter which outdoor activity is your cup of tea, the following are universal park and recreation safety tips to always take into consideration:

  • Wear Sunscreen: We cannot stress the importance of sunscreen enough, make sure to reapply every couple of hours to avoid getting sunburned.
  • Stay Hydrated: Carry a water bottle, and, if you plan to go for a hike, make sure to take snacks along with you.
  • Check for Ticks: Lyme Disease is a serious illness, it can be easily treated when diagnosed early, but, if left untreated, it can linger for years and cause serious side effects. After a day at the park, make sure you check yourself and your family for ticks.
  • Watch Out for Poisonous Plants: Learn to identify the different poisonous plants that grow in these parts, poison ivy and poison sumac can both cause nasty rashes just by touching them, but poison hemlock can actually kill you. If you come in contact with any of these plants head to the nearest Altus Emergency Center for treatment, if possible take a picture of the plant so we can identify it and administer the proper treatment.
