As experienced sports therapists serving all of Kampville, MO, we have seen and successfully treated almost every type of sports injury. Listed below are some of the some of the sports injuries we see the most of.

  • Sprains – A sprain happens when a ligament is torn or overstretched.
  • Strains – When a tendon or muscle is torn or overstretched, you suffer a strain, which are sometimes mistaken for a sprain. Both are common sports injuries.
  • Tendonitis/Tendonosis – When a tendon is overused, it can cause inflammation and become painful, prohibiting activity. Long term or chronic swelling of a tendon can bring about degradation and breakdown of the tendon tissue, leading to tendonitis.
  • Inflamed joints or tissue – Inflammation is a common outcome of many sports injuries and can result in pain and weakness.
  • Broken bones – Overuse and trauma from accidents can cause fractures, for example stress fractures or a broken bone.
  • Dislocations – A sports injury can force a bone out of its socket, dislocating it.
  • Knee injuries – The knee is a major but potentially vulnerable joint that can suffer from a number of different sports injuries causing torn ligaments, cartilage injuries, muscle strains, and fracture.
  • Rotator cuff injuries – The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that prohibits shoulder dislocations while still allowing full range of motion. Impingement and/ or tears are the most common rotator cuff sports injuries.
  • Achilles tendon injuries – The Achilles tendon is a significantly strong and flexible tendon which connects your calf to your heel. Tendonitis and ruptures are common Achilles tendon injuries in active individuals.

And if you do experience a sports injury, get in touch with the Kampville, MO sports therapy team at Axes Physical Therapy right away. We will lead you through you in your rehabilitation and return you to the sports you love as soon as possible.

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

  • Participate after not being active for a while or poor level of fitness
  • Do not 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. As someone who enjoys being active and who has loved ones that are more susceptible to sports injury, whether they are strapping on cleats for the first time or getting active again by tearing up the recreation center’s pickleball court, review the basic recommendations for sports injury prevention to help keep yourself and your Kampville, MO family safe from serious sports injuries. If you or someone you care about suffers a sports injury while playing a sport, trust in the talented Kampville, MO sports therapists of Axes Physical Therapy now for a complimentary injury screening or analysis of your injury.

Sports Injury Prevention

As an athlete or someone who is active, a sports injury can upset your whole schedule and your day-to-day life. Due to physical activity being such a critical facet of your health and wellness, sports injury physical therapists espouse the viewpoint that every one of us is safer with the right sports injury prevention knowledge. Find out more about sports injury prevention by contacting one of our Kampville, MO physical therapists and lower the risk of a sports injury by doing the following:

  • Warm up

    Stiff muscles are at a higher chance of tearing, while warm muscles have more flexibility. As you warm up your muscles, the flexibility helps them absorb force more effectively and shield themselves better against harsh, sudden motions that can otherwise cause injury.

  • Use proper technique

    Sports injuries often happen when you try to do an activity without any experience or training. Any athlete needs a large amount of practice to perfect the technical skills of any sport, but be sure to learn the fundamentals of appropriate movement technique before participating in a sport or activity. For example, understanding how 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 correct equipment while being active. The equipment should not only be suitable for the sport, but also be in good condition 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 suitable for the activity
  • Play in a safe environment

    In addition to having the appropriate equipment to play the sport, it is important that the Kampville, MO setting where you are playing is safe. A sports injury can occur 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 around you can cause a serious sports injury.

  • Stay hydrated

    Drinking sufficient water is a basic health practice that everyone should do. If you are engaging in physical activity, drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout. It is crucial to constantly hydrate while you are being active and afterward to replace the fluids that you lost through perspiration.

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

Eating a balanced, nutritious diet and balancing your caloric intake is a priority for any athlete. Even when you take all the proper precautions and always exercise good judgment when playing a sport or physical activity, sometimes an injury is unavoidable. We cannot always control the world around us, and injuries are part of being an athlete. If you suffer an acute sports injury or notice pain from an overuse injury, contact Axes’ Kampville, MO sports therapists immediately. We will take you through an injury screening to understand the extent and severity of your condition and put together a personalized treatment plan to get you back to health as soon as possible.
