“Sports injury” is a common term, but have you ever wondered exactly what type of injury officially goes into this category? After all, it seems like nearly any type of injury can be incurred while playing sports!
Simply put, sports injuries are typically injuries to the musculoskeletal system, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and discs. Some sports injuries are acute, meaning they happen suddenly during the activity. Others are chronic, occurring over months or even years of use. Muscle sprains, tendon tears, and disc damage are examples of common sports injuries.
Preventing sports injuries by stretching, warming up, seeking out proper training, and following safety measures is your best bet. Remember, it takes more time to recover from an injury than it does to prevent one! However, if you are injured, applying ice is typically the best option. If the injury is severe, very painful, or creates mobility difficulties, it’s important that you seek medical attention.
If you find yourself struggling to recover from an acute and chronic sports injury, we can help. We have advanced diagnostic capabilities and cutting-edge treatments that can get you off the sidelines and back into the game!
