Cheerleaders may wear cute outfits and position themselves far away from any in-game action, but what they actually do can be pretty dangerous. But is it more dangerous than what the athletes they’re cheering on are doing?The medical field seems to think so. They want some serious changes made to cheerleading and for it to be labeled an official sport. The incident Tuesday night involving the Orlando magic cheerleader falling on her head is just the latest in a long list of cheerleading-related injuries.

Is it more dangerous than other sports? Football players take hits to the head every single game, and basketball players often take elbows and knees to various parts of the body. And let’s not forget hockey, where fist-fighting is actually part of the game.
