Types Of Sports Injuries

Depending upon what kind of sport you play, injuries will vary greatly. Typical injuries include:

Neck Injuries

Neck injuries, such as whiplash, occur when the neck is promptly and powerfully pushed forwards or in reverse in a whipping motion. Contact sports, therefore, present a greater risk for whiplash.

Pinched Nerves

Pinched nerves are common even in gentle sports or a quick run across your yard. Dr. Gentry has decades of experience offering chiropractic adjustments of the spinal column to eliminate stress on the nerve, which reduces pain as well as enables the body to function far better as a whole.

Sprains/Strained Muscles & Tendons

Sprains occur when tendons are overly extended, possibly resulting in a tear. Bones are joined by tendons, so strains take place in the joints. Strains take place when muscular tissue or ligaments are torn.

Knee injuries

Knee injuries can be a constant issue for many active athletes. Joggers might experience what is referred to as jogger's knee, which is a tenderness near the knee cap. You may likewise experience discomfort on the sides of your knees as well as tendinitis. Knees can be much more severely wounded with bruising to the bone or damages to cartilage material and ligaments. Four significant ligaments sustain the knee, and all can be harmed while sporting. Knee injuries usually take place from a lack of warming up, running with too much force and not enough muscle to support it, or running too often.

Achilles tendon

This tendon is frequently extended or torn while playing sports - even when walking great distances. They can be season-ending injuries.

Shin Splints

This term defines pain along the shin bone, or shin. This is the bone on the front of the lower leg. Shin splints are commonly experienced by runners. They can take place when a professional athlete doesn't do a proper warm-up and stretching period. They also can happen due to prolonged running without proper resting periods, running on hard material, and if your shoes do not provide proper support. Flat-footed individuals are more susceptible to experience shin splints.


Dislocations are very painful and occur when bones within a joint are separated by a sudden, violent impact. Besides pain, if a joint is dislocated the nerves may also end up being harmed. The joint will certainly need to be reset and may require the use of a sling for several weeks until the swelling subsides.


A bone may break from either a one-time injury or from repeated stress over time. A single injury is an acute crack that needs emergency treatment.
