Sports injuries are part of the game or training; an athlete is always at risk of injury while participating in any athletic or sporting event.
Sports injuries occur while playing indoor and outdoor sports, training, or recreational exercise. Sports injuries can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protection devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries and sprains and strains, fractures, and dislocations.
The most common treatment recommended for common sprains and strains is rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE).
Some of the measures that are followed to prevent sports related injuries include:
Fractures of the femur bone, labral tear, and hip dislocation are some of the more common sports injuries affecting the hip. The hip joint bears more weight and is more susceptible to injuries while playing sports. Hip injuries require immediate medical intervention to avoid further complications. Rehabilitation programs and physical therapy is also often recommended following the medical intervention where you need to perform certain exercises to strengthen the muscles and improve the movements.
