When you are dealing with a sports related injury you can use various ways for treatment. You can partake in taking anti-inflammatory drugs, immobilize the area of injury, surgery, rehabilitation, rest, or other therapy exercises. Immobilization is the most common treatment for sport related injuries. It keeps the injured area from moving and prevents more damage from occurring in the area. Casts, splints, slings, and leg braces are also used to immobilize the injured area. Doing rehabilitation also helps improve the injured area as well, it is the key part of treatment.

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
Injuries impact the school life, profession, and the approach to society of a player. It slows down the natural ability of one to obtain and accomplish their aspirations in life, such as academics achievements or relationship goals (Dr. Echlin, 2014). Physicality and toughness are important factors in sports, especially in hockey. In a sport that is nearing a century old, who dare prohibit the originality of it? But with prolific past injuries on players caused by malicious hits, such as Todd Bertuzzi’s infamous check on Steve Moore in ’04 or superstar Sidney Crosby’s year-long concussion in ’10-11, speculation has started to gather regarding the complete exertion of violence in the NHL. With over 50% of players getting injured each year and

An over-practice injury is very common in sports, but mostly common in baseball. Some athletes participate in multiple sports year-round and that is great for the body. You train one part of the body, then before it gets too bad the season is over and you can move on to the next sport. Some athletes have other plans to practice on one sport year round. It may be great, you are learning the game well, but you are fatiguing some parts of your body and those parts could just wear out to the point where it hurts or you can’t use them anymore. (Gale

First, is the education of the patient, if the athlete is willing to report and communicate the problem to the appropriate personnel at the moment and time when it happens, the medical staff will be on the ability of removing the athlete from participation if it is necessary. In addition of educating the athletes, it will be vital to focus on the education of coaches, and parents over the consequences of this injury, the responses of the athlete during the injury, importance of reporting this to the medical personnel (Athletic trainer), and acceptance of the injury. By increasing the awareness of the injury, the medical staff will be more accurate, precise, and the time of recovery will be lower since the athlete will report it in a shorter period of time.

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
