Sports Injuries

Anyone that exercises on a regular basis will experience a sports injury. These injuries can affect many areas of the body, resulting from overuse or impact with an object. There are times when a person might begin to suffer from chronic injuries, which tend to result from prolonged overuse of the same joints. These injuries can be very difficult to identify at times, which is why seeking physical therapy and rehab is often the best solution to these issues.
The following will provide an in-depth look at many common injuries that are related to sports and the best treatments available to you.

Most Common Sports Injuries

There is a wide range of sports injuries that a person can suffer from, including:

Bruising - This can be due to a direct blow with an object and can sometimes lead to bleeding.

Cuts - These often occur when a person falls.

Ankle Sprain - A sprain when exercising can lead to swelling and pain.

Concussion – A concussion results from direct impact to the head and indicates mild brain injury that can be reversed. Dizziness and headaches are common symptoms.

Dental Issues - A hit to the jaw can damage teeth.

Knee Joint Issues - Pain and stiffness are two likely symptoms, while damage to cartilage and tendons can lead to further knee pain.

Dehydration- Too little fluids in your system can cause heat stroke.

Nose Injuries- Typically caused by impact to the nose that leads to bleeding or a broken nose

Take Immediate Action After an Injury, Dislodged Tooth or Nose Bleed

If you’ve suffered from an injury or sprain, make sure to stop whatever you’re doing and rest the area of impact for at least 1-2 days, while applying an ice pack to the area for around 15-20 minutes every two or so hours. Bandage the area and seek treatment as soon as possible. When a tooth has been dislodged, rinse the tooth and head to a dentist straight away. As for a nose bleed, lean your head forward and sit down. Hold both your nostrils shut and keep them like that for 10-15 minutes.
