Health Tip: Skate Safely

Health Tip: Skate Safely


(HealthDay News) -- Before your kids lace up their in-line skates, make sure they're prepared.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to reduce the risk of injury while in-line skating:

  • Make sure your child is always wearing protective equipment.
  • Skate carefully, and make sure to allow plenty of room for stopping.
  • Stick to the right side of the sidewalk or path, and pass on the left side.
  • Don't skate in areas where the ground is uneven or where there is traffic.
  • Always yield to pedestrians, and follow all traffic rules.
