You are at a heightened risk of a sports injury if you:

  • Play a contact sport with an inherently higher risk of injury

Age also plays a factor in sports injuries, as younger children and the elderly are at higher risk.

Sports Injury Prevention

As an athlete or anyone who is active, a sports injury can disrupt your entire routine and your day-to-day life. Due to physical activity being such a important part of your health and well-being, sports injury physical therapists advocate for the viewpoint that we all are safer with the right sports injury prevention knowledge. Learn more about sports injury prevention by calling one of our Argentville, MO physical therapists and lower the risk of a sports injury by doing the following:

  • Warm up

    Inactive muscles have an increased risk of tearing, while warm muscles are more flexible. As you warm up your muscles, the flexibility lets them absorb impacts more easily and be more resilient against harsh, sudden motions that can otherwise leads to injury.

  • Use proper technique

    Sports injuries often occur when you attempt to participate in a sport without any experience or training. You need a great deal of practice to perfect the technical skills of any sport, but be sure to learn the foundations of appropriate movement technique before playing a sport or activity. For example, understanding how to bend your knees as you land from a jump can protect you from certain sports injuries to the ankle, knee, hip, and spine.

  • Use the necessary equipment

    It is vital that you use the right equipment when being active. The equipment should not only be suitable for the sport, but also be functioning properly and safe to use. This includes the following:

    • Safety gear such as helmets, pads, or safety goggles
    • Clothing that fits you well and is designed for physical activity
    • Footwear that is appropriate for the activity
  • Play in safe conditions

    In addition to using the appropriate equipment to play the sport, it is important that the Argentville, MO setting where you are playing is safe. A sports injury can happen when the surface of the court is wet and slippery or the turf is muddy. Even if you are conscientious, warming up and stretching adequately before activity, hazardous conditions where you play can lead to a serious sports injury.

  • Stay hydrated

    Drinking enough water is a fundamental health practice that everyone should do. If you are practicing in physical activity, drink a lot of of water before, during, and after your workout. It is vital to regularly hydrate while you are being active and afterward to replenish the fluids you have lost through perspiring.

    In addition to staying hydrated, practicing good nutrition also lowers your risk of a sports injury.

Eating a balanced, nutritious diet and monitoring your caloric intake is a priority for any athlete. Even when you take all the proper precautions and always exercise good judgment when participating in a sport or being active, from time to time an injury is unavoidable.
