And if you do experience a sports injury, call the Campbellton, MO sports therapy team at Axes Physical Therapy right away. We will guide you in you in your rehabilitation and get you back to the activities you love as soon as possible.

You have a heightened risk of a sports injury if you:

  • Neglect to stretch or warm up before playing
  • Play a contact sport with an inherently higher chance of injury

Young children and older adults are also at a higher risk of experiencing a sports injury.

Sports Injury Prevention

As an athlete or anyone who is active, a sports injury can disrupt your entire schedule and your daily life. Because physical activity is such a vital element of your health and well-being, sports injury physical therapists promote the view that all of us are safer with the right sports injury prevention knowledge. Find out more about sports injury prevention by calling one of our Campbellton, MO physical therapists and lessen the risk of a sports injury by doing the following:

  • Warm up

    Cold muscles have a heightened risk of tearing, while warmed up muscles are more flexible. As your muscles warm up, the flexibility allows them to absorb force more effectively and shield themselves better against jarring, sudden movements that can otherwise cause injury.

  • Use proper technique

    Sports injuries commonly happen when you attempt to do an activity without any experience or training. It takes a large amount of practice to perfect the technical skills of any sport, but be sure to learn the fundamentals of proper movement technique before participating in a sport or activity. For example, knowing to bend your knees while 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 crucial that you use the right equipment when you are active. The equipment should not only be right for the sport, but also be functioning properly and safe to use. Some examples of equipment are:

    • 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 having the appropriate gear to play the sport, it is important that the Campbellton, MO location 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 alert, warming up and stretching adequately before activity, dangerous conditions where you play can result in a serious sports injury.

  • Stay hydrated

    Drinking enough water is a basic health practice that everyone should do. When engaging in physical activity, drink a lot of of water before, during, and after your workout. It is crucial to regularly hydrate during physical activity and afterward to replace the fluids you have lost through perspiration.

    In addition to staying hydrated, practicing good nutrition also reduces your chances of suffering a sports injury.

Eating a balanced, nutritious diet and balancing your caloric intake is a priority for any athlete. Even with precautionary measures and practicing good judgement when playing a sport or being active, sometimes an injury is not preventable. Many things are outside of our control, and injuries are part of being an athlete. If you suffer a serious sports injury or notice pain from an overuse injury, contact Axes’ Campbellton, MO sports therapists right away. We will take you through an injury screening to understand the extent and severity of your condition and create a custom treatment plan to restore you to health as soon as possible.
