But for athletes, it can especially be more dreadful as it can make or break their careers. Back In 2013, there were almost 530,000 basketball players; 521,578 bicycle riders; and 420,581 football players who were treated in emergency rooms due to in-game injuries as recorded by the US National Safety Council in Itasca. Most of these athletes witnessed their athletic careers vanish in a blink of an eye, making injuries one of an athlete’s worst nightmares.
Among the list of common sports injuries, the following are reported to be the TOP 3 that athletes have experienced and also need to look out for:[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ layout=”1_1″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=”” min_height=”” hover_type=”none” link=””][fusion_title size=”3″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=”” id=””]Torn ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament)[/fusion_title][fusion_text]Knee injuries come out as one of the most recorded injuries in the world of sports. Your knee’s Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL is one of the main ligaments which takes care of its everyday functions and gives it stability. Torn ACL injury is considered as one of the most common knee injuries experienced by athletes in events which involve a lot of “stop-and-go” movements, jumping, and sudden change of directional movements such as basketball and volleyball.[/fusion_text][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=”” /][fusion_text]An injured ACL, if left untreated, may cause the knee to “give away” and give way to osteoarthritis and other severe knee injuries in the future. Signs of an acute ACL injury include:

  • A popping sound at the time of the injury
  • Pain around and behind the knee
  • Swelling which causes limited knee movement
  • Feeling of knee “giving out”

Doctors widely suggest torn ACL patients to undergo surgery with postoperative rehabilitation which may take about 6-9 months.

More often than not, overuse of the ball-and-socket joint remains to be the number one cause of damage resulting in a loose rotator cuff which covers the muscles and tendons around the shoulders. Swimming, baseball, tennis, weight lifting, basketball and among many other sports which require overhead movements are usually the primary suspects of shoulder injuries.[/fusion_text][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=”” /][fusion_text]Celebrity fitness coach, Jillian Michaels, points out that as the body ages with time and stress, upper body strength deteriorates and makes you prone to injuries and diseases. Taking it from Michaels’ perspective, the best way to prevent such injuries is to strengthen the shoulder muscles.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ layout=”1_1″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=”” min_height=”” hover_type=”none” link=””][fusion_title size=”3″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=”” id=””]Ankle Sprains[/fusion_title][fusion_text]Certainly one of the worst game changers for athletes, this culprit strikes when body weight is exerted on the ankle and is rolled inward damaging the ankle’s outer ligaments. Basketball, volleyball, track, football, and soccer make athletes prone to ankle injuries due to movements such as running, cutting, and jumping.[/fusion_text][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=”” /][fusion_text]A research conducted by Glenn Williams and Eric Allen of the University of Iowa shows that there are 10 million ankle sprains recorded each year in the United States alone and account for 15% – 20% of all sports injuries. Ankle sprains can come out as mild or severe. The former will take 1-2 weeks until you can get back into the game while the latter can take up to 6 weeks. Such injuries usually do not need to be operated, but need to be rehabilitated and strengthened afterwards unless a fracture occurs.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ layout=”1_1″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=”” min_height=”” hover_type=”none” link=””][fusion_text]Thankfully, with the continuous development in Sports medicine, athletes are more informed and medical professionals are more equipped and continuously find various effective and faster ways to rehabilitate athletes from these and other injuries.
