High impact sports require athlete participation in relation to sprinting, jumping, and pounding of the legs and other various parts of the body. Cheerleading is a great example of a high impact sport! Cheerleading requires a the repetition of constant stress on bones and consistent pounding of the legs and other parts of the body. This kind of stress placed on the bones results in a small amount of damage found within the surface of the bone, these tears stimulate new bone growth. During this process the tears in the bone calcify resulting in a higher bone density. This is why scientists believe that participating in sports as a child results in stronger bones as you age.
