Sports Injuries Q & A
What are common sports injuries?
Regular exercise and participation in organized sports is a good way to stay in shape. Unfortunately, when you physically push your body, you increase your risk of injury.
Sports injuries are common and may occur from an unexpected accident, poor training, or using the wrong gear.
A sports injury may affect any part of your body, from your head to your feet. Some of the most common types of sports injuries include:
- Sprains and strains
- Ruptured muscles, tendons, or discs
When you hurt yourself exercising or playing a sport, it’s important that you stop your activity right away. Continuing physical activity with a sports injury may worsen your condition and prolong your healing and recovery time.
When should I seek help for my sports injury?
You should seek medical care for your sports injury as soon as possible. Though your injury may be minor and only require rest, ice, compression, and elevation, getting the right diagnosis and treatment early can help you get back to your active lifestyle faster.
Lynnwood Chiropractic & Injury Center specializes in the treatment of sports injuries and provides comprehensive care that supports your body’s natural healing process.
