BACKGROUND: With its increase in participation rate and complex stunts and gymnastic-like maneuvers, cheerleading injuries are on the rise.
OBJECTIVE: A structured narrative review of the literature was performed to discover the status of the literature on a growing yet under recognized sport. Cheerleading injuries are described in terms of distribution, etiology, and prevention.
METHODS: A literature search was conducted. The articles were then reviewed and included based on broad criteria set out by the author.
RESULTS: The search produced 87 articles related to cheerleading injuries or articles with a mention of cheerleading. A total of 26 articles were included in this review based on the inclusion criteria. The most common injury experienced by a cheerleader is an ankle ligament sprain.
SUMMARY: The recognition of cheerleading as a sport and a mandatory reporting database are needed along with further research for injury prevention strategies to be implemented.
