Sports and Personal Injuries Q & A

What are some common sports injuries?

Some of the most common injuries in sports involve:

  • Foot and ankle Injuries - include sprains and strains, ankle fractures, and Achilles tendinitis.
  • Shoulder Injuries - caused by overuse of shoulder while playing sports.
  • Hip Injuries – Because the hip joint bears more weight it is more susceptible to fractures of the femur bone, labral tear, and hip dislocation.
  • Knee Injuries – Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are the most common injuries in high-impact sports such as football or soccer.

What are the most common treatments for injury?

The most common treatment recommended for an injury is the RICE method. This means:

  • Rest to avoid aggravating the injury, stop the activities that may cause injury.
  • Ice applied to the injured area to diminish swelling and pain.
  • Compression of the injured area with elastic wraps and splints can help to reduce swelling.
  • Elevating the injured area above heart level will reduce swelling and pain.
