What You Should Know

According to the National Institutes of Health, the prevalent types of fitness injuries most often include:

Knee Injuries & Sprains

Shin Splints & Strains

Swollen Muscles, Fractures, & Dislocations

A proper diagnosis of a fitness or sports injury involves a thorough evaluation from a professional.

What are the Most Common Ways Athletes Get Hurt?

Depending on the nature of the sports activities in which athletes participate, they may face the possibility of encountering different types of injuries. The human body is subjected to unique stresses and demands during various sports, making certain injuries more prevalent in specific athletic pursuits.

By understanding the specific injury profiles related to their sports, athletes can implement targeted training strategies, adopt proper techniques, and seek professional guidance to reduce the risk of injury and optimize their performance on the field or court.

Ankle Injuries: Athletes who engage in activities involving frequent running are susceptible to ankle injuries. Rolling or twisting the ankle can lead to strains or tears in the connective tissues.

Pulled Muscles: Overusing tired muscles, especially after prolonged workouts or performances, can cause them to stretch or tear. This commonly occurs in various areas of the legs due to the constant running, jumping, and quick changes of direction required in most sports.

Shin Splints: Extended periods of running can result in inflammation of the muscles and connective tissues surrounding the shin.

Knee Injuries: A sudden twisting or improper bending of the knee can cause ligament sprains.

Tennis Elbow: Officially known as tendinitis, tennis elbow occurs when the muscles and connective tissues around the elbow become inflamed from repetitive use.

Hip Flexor Strain: The hip flexor muscles, located on the upper-front side of the thigh, play a significant role in lifting the knee towards the trunk and assisting in leg movements. Weakness or stiffness in these muscles can be caused by prolonged sitting or poor posture. Sports-related injuries to the hip flexors can occur during activities such as sprinting, running on inclines, and sudden starts and turns.

In addition to joint, muscle, and bone injuries, concussions have become a prominent concern in sports. A concussion is a traumatic head injury that may result in severe headaches, altered levels of alertness, or even loss of consciousness. It can occur when the head is struck by a moving object or hits a solid surface.

Concussions are among the most challenging injuries to manage in sports today, and physical therapy plays a crucial role in the multidisciplinary approach to their diagnosis and treatment.

If any of this information resonates with your current situation, we urge you to schedule an appointment with us immediately. Don't let hip pain diminish your life quality - allow us to help you embark on the path to relief today.
