Injury - Breaks


Bone breaks, unlike sprains and strains, and should always be looked at by a physician to ensure proper healing and connection. If a physician has not examined an injury, or pain does not subside, seek professional opinion.

Athletes are most susceptible

All sports and exercises, even walking, carry a risk of sprains. The anatomic areas most at risk for a sprain depend on the specific activities involved. For example basketball, volleyball, soccer and other jumping sports share a risk for foot, leg and ankle sprains.

Soccer, football, hockey, boxing, wrestling and other contact sports put athletes at risk for strains. So do sports that feature quick starts (hurdling, long jump , running races). Gymnastics, tennis, bodybuilding, rowing and gold (sports that require extensive gripping) have a high incidence of hand strains. Elbow strains frequently occur in racquet, throwing and contact sports.

Basketball leads the list of 10 popular summer recreational activities with the most injuries. Each year, more than 1.5 million injuries related to basketball are medically treated, according to data from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Other high-injury activities include bike riding, baseball, soccer, softball, jumping on trampolines, inline skating, horseback riding, bodybuilding, weightlifting and volleyball.

Trampolines are responsible for a large number of sprains, strains and fractures.
