West New York Sports Injury Prevention

Stay Active & Healthy

In West New York, we have many patients coming in with injuries due to the large amount of baseball, football, and soccer leagues in the area The best way to prevent a sports injury is to warm up properly and stretch.

Cold muscles are prone to overstretching and tears. Warm muscles are more flexible. They can absorb quick movements, bends, and jerks, making injury less likely.

What Are the Signs You Have a Sports Injury?

Many sports injuries cause immediate pain or discomfort. Others, like overuse injuries, might be noticed only after long-term damage. These injuries are often diagnosed during routine physical examinations or checkups.

How We Diagnose Sports Injuries

If you think you have a sports injury, your doctor will likely use the following steps to get a diagnosis.

These include:

  • Physical examination. We will attempt to move the injured joint or body part. This helps them see how the area is moving, or how it’s not moving if that’s the case.
  • Medical history. This involves asking you questions about how you were injured, what you were doing, what you’ve done since the injury, and more. If this is your first time visiting this doctor, they may also ask for a more thorough medical history.
  • Imaging tests. X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and ultrasounds can all help your doctor and healthcare providers see inside your body. This helps them confirm a sports injury diagnosis.

Don’t ignore your symptoms. Remember, the earlier you get a diagnosis and treatment, the sooner you’ll recover and get back in the game.

What Are Common Sports Injury Conditions?

The most common sports injuries in are sprains and strains. Contact sports, like football and basketball, account for more injuries than noncontact sports, like swimming and running.

A 2016 study actually found that 8.6 million people, ages 5 to 24, have a sports injury every year in the United States. Researchers note males ages 5 to 24 make up more than half of all sports injury episodes.

Risks of Sports Injury
