Sports Injuries

Don’t Sit on the Sidelines

Sports injuries occur for a variety of reasons. Acute injuries occur when contact or force is too much for your muscles, joints or bones to absorb. A twisted ankle, an awkward landing, a fall off your bicycle, or a collision at second base are examples of this type of injury. Overuse injuries, on the other hand, are a gradual breakdown of body structures, usually due to repetitive motion. Poor technique and structural abnormalities can also contribute to the development of overuse injuries.

 

Prevention

Reduce your risk.

You can reduce your risk of sports injuries by doing the following:

  • Do some pre-season conditioning for your sport or activity
  • Make training changes gradually
  • Always warm up thoroughly
  • Use good form and technique
  • Tape or strap vulnerable joints, if necessary
  • Use the appropriate safety equipment, such as mouth guards, helmets and pads
  • Cool down afterward with gentle, sustained stretches
 
 

Symptoms
