Pelvis consists of 5 main apophysis with several ligament and tendons attach to it. They fuse around 14 years in girls and 16 years in boys. They form a weak zone of attachment to the main pelvic bone and are prone to injury particularly during contact sports. These injuries should be kept into consideration by sports trainer at the side line, physical therapist, physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners involved in the treatment of children with pelvic injuries. Early diagnosis and treatment is associated with good functional outcome.
