Highly specialized high school athletes more likely to have certain injuries, study says

Titled “Prevalence of Sport Specialization in High School Athletics,” this one-year observational study found that high school athletes from a smaller school were less likely to specialize in a sport than those attending a large school. The researchers also found that highly specialized athletes were more likely to report a history of overuse knee or hip injuries.
