How can I sustain sports injuries?
Oftentimes, most people misinterpret the definition of sports injuries. Lots believe that it is when a footballer gets hurt during a tackle. However, sports injuries are beyond that. It is a type of injury that occurs when performing any athletic activity such as running on a field track with an ill-fitted shoe, lifting heavyweight at the gym, swinging a bat in any improper position, or getting kicked mistakenly during a football match.
In most cases, it is very highly advisable to treat sports injuries immediately it happens. Delaying the treatment process might lead to more pain and extensive damage at the affected spot. If you got a sports injury, contact Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic to examine your condition and recommend a treatment plan that will help you get back on your feet. Your treatment plan depends on your condition, health history, and other related health factors.
Common types of Sports injuries
Sports injuries can be caused by various factors that can lead to different injuries while performing athletic activities. Some of the common injuries include;
A sprain occurs when your ligament is stretched beyond its regular limits. It is most common during field activities. Once you experience a sprain, it is more likely to reoccur again.
Strain (pulled muscle)
This is so similar to a sprain. A strain occurs when your tendons or muscles are stretched beyond their required limits.
The most complex joint in the body is located at the knee. For most athletes, this part is frequently injured during athletic activities. Knee injuries can cause dull aches that run from your hip to your knee, limited motion range at the knee, or severe tears such as ACL tears which usually require intensive rehabilitation and, in some cases, surgical correction.
Shin splint is also referred to as medial tibial stress syndrome. It occurs when the shinbone and the connective tissue are stressed, which causes pain to be felt at the shin. When you have shin splints, you often feel weak and restricted due to the pain. Orthopedic, sports physiotherapy and massage therapy can help you recover by warming up before exercise or strenuous activities, wearing better footwear, and strengthening your core and leg muscles.
