AAP is the professional organization for pediatricians in the U.S, and it “strongly discourages” use of home trampolines. 1. The most common trampoline-related injury is a sprained ankle; this isn’t severe, but can be painful and will limit kids’ participation in sports and other activities. Broken bones and dislocations are also a risk, especially for young children. Trampoline jumping poses a high risk of injury for children.
The activity can result in sprains and fractures in the arms or legs — as well as head and neck injuries. The risk of injury is so high that the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly discourages the use of trampolines at home. Trampoline park injuries also are on the rise. (CBS News) The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is discouraging the recreational use of trampolines, saying the activity poses a major injury risk for kids and there’s no clear way to reduce.

As the weather warms each season, however, pediatric orthopaedists tend to. Turns out it’s really hard to quantify the risk trampolines pose—I’ll explain why in a bit—yet most pediatricians and orthopedists agree: Trampolines are a terrible idea for young kids and not so.
While the Trump administration is urging schools to open in the fall, many parents remain concerned about the safety of their children.Amid the coronavirus pandemic, is going back to school safe? The American Academy of Pediatrics has some answers. The nation’s top pediatrician group made headlines last month after releasing clinical guidance saying this. Pediatricians know how addictive and fun trampolines can be for kids.
Unfortunately, we often see trampoline-related accidents in our exam rooms because kids don’t understand the proper safety precautions before they start jumping. As a result, we find ourselves treating fractures and sprains in the wrists, back and knees. As a parent, it’s vital to monitor.
