Sport injuries are impossible to avoid. All athletes at one point or another in their life experience some kind of injury. With injuries, they can begin gradually and worsen over time without proper care or they can come on at any given point. Shin splints can easily turn into stress fractures, but anyone in football can get tackled and end up with a broken bone or torn tendon in a matter of seconds. Athletes are known to push through the pain in practices in fear of not being able to compete in the upcoming game.We are so dedicated and passionate to our sport that even the thought of taking time off to heal is far from actually happening until the injury becomes serious. Athletes become hostile when it comes to the physical aspect of the recovery, however they do not put nearly as much time into the
Athletes everywhere suffer from some kind of injury at some point of their athletic career. There are a variety of injuries and they can range from minor to severe. In many circumstances the recovering process can take a toll on the body. In severe cases, usually those pertaining to the head, the results from such injuries can be not only physically but psychologically. The 2 main injuries that will be covered throughout this paper will touch the surface of a few problems an athlete can endure throughout their tenure. Head injuries are the most severe type an athlete can come across with most of them consisting of concussions. These concussions can lead to a variety of issues. Also, an athlete can endure many types of knee injuries. These injuries can consist of either sprains or tears to ligaments. The ligaments that are affected consist of the lateral, medial, posterior, and anterior cruciate ligaments.
According to yard house from “ A comparison of high school sport injury surveillance data reporting by certified athletic trainer and coaches”, “High school athletes sustain more than 1.4 million injuries annually”. Many of these injuries are caused because public high school do not provide enough professional care for athletes. Some of the reasons that athletes are not provided with right care is because of insurance, proper equipment and educated professionals to treat injuries.
Sports are full of injuries. Some are life changing, some are temporary. Everyone loves sports though. Especially full contact sports such as football. Football causes the most concussions than any other
Professional athletes are more prone to get injured than a lot of other professions. “He was on his way to a record shattering career until taking a hit from Kevin Walker that popped his hip out of place during a playoff game in ‘90. Because of this hit, Bo had to get hip replacement surgery and wasn’t able to return to football” (Diaz). Bo Jackson took one hard hit in football and could not play ever again, and his life would forever be changed after a hip replacement surgery. Athletes never know when they are going to get
Most collegiate athletes receive injuries during his or her athletic career. There is an astonishing 750,000 injuries reported per year in the United States. Injuries are the worst part of being a college competitor. Even worse, is the possibility of a requiring injury or multiple injuries in one’s career? Breaking a bone or tearing a muscle puts both a physical and mental toll on the athlete. It sucks to
High school athletes account for an estimated 2 million injuries and 500,000 doctor visits and 30,000 hospitalizations each year. Young children are starting to specialize in one sport earlier and earlier throughout the years. That may possible cause problems of injuries or abilities. Sports intensity is teaching kids discipline and teamwork. The intensity in sports is causing children to have many injuries hurting them forever, but if we get the coaches and parents aware we can help the risk factors.
In sports, the probability of getting an injury is very high. Players don’t even have to try and may get severely hurt. Some teammates and coaches say that the players just need to be more careful and watch their surroundings more intently. But, players have to be continuously aware of their surroundings to keep themselves from getting hurt by others, much less self-inflicted injuries. Mark Hyman and Nathan Pitcock, writers from The New York Times, write “Half of all sports injuries among kids each year are caused by simple overuse… injuries-stress fractures, ruptured ligaments, and growth plate injuries- can be quite serious, and many can cause lifelong problems” (Pitcock, Hyman 1). These injuries are all very common with today’s youth. The lifelong injuries are not worth the risk of playing one more game. If players really want to avoid self-afflicted injuries, they should prepare themselves for the sport year around so that they are conditioned for the next season, but players should play more than one sport to cross-train and avoid overuse of specific bones and
Although disordered eating has historically been considered a female concern, it is on the rise among males. Estimates of disordered eating behaviors in athletes are growing, and are as high as 62% among female athletes and 33% among male athletes. Some athletes may also have eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa, related to clinical mental conditions. Characteristics of a possible eating
Despite this, the research findings to date are difficult to interpret due to inconsistencies, with the relationship between personality and injury remaining unclear. It would seem unlikely that a personality profile that characterizes 'injury-prone ' athletes actually exists (4), although some studies have identified patterns/trends that appear to warrant further investigation.
In sports, especially professional sports injury is a great possibly, and a common and very serious injury is plaguing all sports. The concussion is that injury. And over the past few years the NHL and other leagues or trying to crack down on concussions; but those are only partial solutions. In hockey concussions, can come from anything and happen at any time. Thus, proposing a solution or a way to prevent them, is very difficult. As per a study that took place from 1997-2004, results published in 2011 by CTV, states “With averages ranging from 4.6 to 7.7 concussions per 100 NHL players per season, it’s likely that each of the 30 teams in the league will see at least one or two players miss time due to a concussion every year” (Tahirali). Thusly supporting how many players received concussions, even if this study is older. Many people are fighting to get the game changed to combat concussions, and just as many fight to not change the game; although they still do not want concussions.
Injuries play a big role in an athlete's career and his or her overall health, although minor injuries are often nothing to worry about they can lead to something serious especially if the injury is repeatedly being aggravated. scrapes, cuts, bruises, and broken bones are all things to worry about. When a player is injured he or she is losing play time and money and why risk this when there is small but giant steps that can be taken to prevent injuries. But brain injuries are something much more serious even if the player says not to worry because something worse than losing playtime is losing your life. Albert C. hergenroeder has written an article on preventing sports injuries, he says that there are 3 million sports injuries among kids around
The main research of this paper is Sports injuries. Sport injuries are very common in the modern world and it has severe effects in the life of athletes. Injuries related to sport can lead to loss of life, body parts or career depending on the severity of the accident. Sport injuries have several negative impacts on the physical, mental, social ability of athletes. To accomplish the paper appropriately some real-life examples have been included in this research, for illustration. For better understanding of the rise of the sports related injuries, a graph has been mentioned that shows the difference between the numbers of sports injuries recently compared to 2004. Finally the research paper has been concluded by proving that
Young athletes are at very high risks for injuries during the course of playing sports. It should be recognized that the development stage of adolescent growth is a period of physiological growth in height, muscle, skeletal and with their desire to be recognized by peers. Their belief that nothing bad will happen to them makes adolescents themselves prone to injuries. High school students play sports for various reasons such as scholarships, talents, hobbies, and fame, these reasons make high school athletics an important aspect of the student’s life.
There is news all over the sports world about athletes getting injured with hairline fractures, torn ACLs, and most often, concussions. Little do the spectators know that those injuries to the head put those victims at a greater risk for something far worse later in their lifetime. Diseases like ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and CTEs (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) can be caused to occur earlier in an athlete’s life rather than a non athlete due to these blows to the head they suffer on a weekly basis.
