Sports injuries are a very common occurrence, due to the physical nature of each sport.
Different sports tend to bring about different injuries. For example, a contact sport such as football and wrestling usually creates traumatic injuries: contusions, sprains, bone fractures, concussions, and spinal damage. While other sports such as baseball and tennis tend to create injuries from overuse: rotator cuff, tendonitis, runner’s knee, and tennis elbow.
Exercising and staying in shape help to prevent sports injuries. Warming up and stretching before doing any sports activity are crucial in the prevention of injury. South Lake Pain Institute is highly experienced in treating all manner of sports injuries.
