Sports or exercise injuries can occur due to accidents, improper training practices or gear that is not properly fitted. While exercising is important, not being in shape may lead to injuries. It is important to properly warm up and stretch to avoid an injury especially for those weekend sports warriors.
The most common sports injuries are
- Sprains and strains
- Knee injuries
- Swollen muscles
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Pain along the shin bone
- Rotator cuff injuries
If you get hurt, do not play through the injury. Initial treatment is RICE; rest, ice, compression and elevation of the affected injured area. Sometimes an x-ray. Digital x-ray services are provided at Your Doc’s In. If needed, we can refer you for additional diagnostic testing or a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon.
