Sports And A Healthy Lifestyle

A popular way to maintain your health is to exercise by participating in sports. Exercise is very good for your overall health. It can reduce stress and even strengthen your joints, bones, and heart. However, it is an unfortunate fact that injuries can occur while partaking in these activities. Whether you've become overzealous with your routine or simply forget to use the proper safety equipment, it's common to be injured while doing simple activities.

Sports Related Injuries

The most common sports injuries are strains, sprains, tendinosis, and stress fractures. When a person accidentally twists or overextends a joint, the muscles and tendons can tear. Overextending these muscles can cause a strain. If the ligament tears, it can result in a severe sprain. Tendinosis (overuse syndrome) happens when certain joints in the body are overused. When these parts become overworked, pain and dysfunction are the result. Tennis Elbow and Golfer's Elbow are great examples of tendinosis. Stress fractures (also known as fatigue fractures) are another injury commonly seen related to sports injuries. These fractures happen when there is a large amount of weight being placed on a bone. It is extremely common with beginner runners who start off at a higher level than advised.

Comprehensive Care

In order to diagnose an existing injury that you may have, x-rays or MRIs may be necessary. X-rays can help identify any bone issues and misalignments, and MRIs help rule out fractures and allow doctors to find soft-tissue injuries. Ice and heat along with elevation and rest are helpful in most cases to reduce pain and inflammation while the tissue heals. The most important thing to know is how sports injuries can be prevented. Educating yourself on proper warm-up and cool down techniques, sufficient water intake, and proper movements can help reduce the possibility of sports injuries.
