SPORTS INJURIES IN ADULTS:
As a former athlete earning 12 Varsity Letters in high school, I love organized sports. But now as an adult, I tend to shy away because of potential injury. I personally know a dozen people whom have injured themselves either on the court, the field or the road.
Adults are Prone to Injuries:
Statistics show men ages 25 to 40 are most likely to get hurt from bicycling, basketball, football, baseball, softball or soccer. Of the nearly 570,000 basketball injuries treated in U.S. emergency departments in 2012, 93% were in men. Men also accounted for 88% of the 466,000 football injuries that year. Women ages 25 to 40 are most often injured from bicycling and softball.
Injuries Vary by Sport:
Common injuries vary by sport as well as age. Basketball most often injures fingers, ankles and knees. Bicycling causes head and shoulder injuries. Baseball and soccer are hard on ankles, knees, and the face. Football damages fingers, knees and shoulders more than any other part of the body.
Ways to Minimize Injury:
Using proper technique, strength training, warm-up exercises, and stretching can help athletes of all ages prevent sports injuries.
