    • Unusual weight gain or loss

    • Sexual underdevelopment and dysfunction

    • Violent, suicidal, or depressive tendencies


  • Most common injuries that occur from exercise are to the muscular and skeletal systems.

  • Usually result from too much stress on a joint or muscle

Minor exercise related injuries
Minor exercise related injuries

  • Muscle Cramp

    • Spam or sudden tightening of the muscle

    • Usually resulted from irritation in muscle from tired, overwork, dehydration

  • Strain

    • Condition in which muscles have been overworked

    • Can occur from participating in strenuous activity you are not used to

  • Sprain

    • Injury to tissues surrounding joint

    • Ligaments may be stretched or torn

    • Accompanied by sever pain, swelling, difficulty moving


  • RICE

    • Rest

      • Avoid using affected area for 1-2 day

    • Ice

      • 20 min on, 20 min off

    • Compression

      • LIGHT pressure can help reduce swelling

    • Elevation

      • Raise affected limb above heart level can reduce pain and swelling

Major injuries
Major Injuries

  • Fractures

    • Any type of break in a bone

    • Usually require immobilization

  • Dislocation

    • Bone slips from its normal position at a joint

    • Bone put back in place, immobilization so tissue can heal

  • Tendinitis

    • Tendons stretched or torn from overuse

    • Rest, medication, physical therapy to heal

  • Blows to head

    • Can cause swelling of brain; unconsciousness and even death

    • Concussions: temporary disturbance of the brain’s ability to function

Hot weather risks
Hot Weather risks

  • Most are related to overexertion, overworking the body, or dehydration

  • Heat cramps: muscle spasms that result from loss of large amounts of salt and water through perspiration

  • Heat exhaustion: overheating of the body resulting in cold, clammy skin and symptoms of shock

    • Happens in hot, humid atmospheres

  • If you continue exercising with these conditions, can result in heat stroke

Cold weather risks
Cold Weather Risks

  • Frostbite: condition that results when body tissue becomes frozen

    • Typically affects head, face, feet, and fingers

  • Hypothermia: condition in which body temperature becomes dangerously low

    • Brain can’t function, body systems shut down
