The Four Most Common Sports Have Four Common Injuries

On a daily basis, athletes attempt to exceed the limits of their body. They stretch, push,

maneuver, and even injure the bones and muscles in their body. Many times, especially during

competition, those who engage in sports suffer

injuries and strains that lead to long-term

damage to the body. If you, a relative, or family

member is thinking about participating on an

athletic team, it’s important to consider physical

features such as body mass index (BMI) to

fully assess the safety risks of engaging in a

specific sport.

According to the National Safety Council,

basketball was considered the most dangerous

sport of 2013, succeeding from football and

soccer. Many of these athletes experience

injuries that lead to long-term knee and back pain. Defined by The South Texas Spinal Clinic as

a fracture that occurs in the bone or in other materials, fatigue fractures are also very common

in basketball athletes.

Basketball players aren’t the only ones to be exposed to these kinds of injuries. Football players

also tend to players tend to experience the severe pain because of the amount of immediate

contact each player experiences.

Of the four most common sports in San Antonio, football,

basketball, baseball, and soccer, the four most common

injuries are located in the knee, shoulder, lower back, and

ankles. Accidents in the shoulder makes the top of the list

as the most common sports injury. Of spine-related

injuries, pain in the cervical spine and lower back were

considered to be the most common pains to develop over

time due to repetitive extensions and rotations of the body.

If you are exposed to injury or long-term pain from athletic

activities (or accidents), be sure to consult with a doctor

depending on its severity.
