Sports Injuries

The health benefits of taking part in regular sport and exercise are huge, and far outweigh the risk of any injury. Nevertheless, injuries are always a risk – especially in high-impact and contact sports. But by taking a few sensible precautions such as warming up properly before exercising, using the correct equipment and not pushing yourself too hard, it is possible to greatly minimise the risk of injury.

Causes

Injury usually results from a sudden impact or an awkward movement, but can also occur over time due to overusing various parts of the body. Athletes, such as long distance runners, footballers, etc, are at high risk of overuse injuries due to the extreme nature of their training and the overuse of specific muscle groups. Most sports injuries respond well to physiotherapy and with appropriate treatment full recovery can be achieved and maintained.
