Injuries can be faced by anyone irrespective of the season or time. Plus, the cause of injury decides its severity. But some injuries are often noticed in a specific season and hence, it is important to be extra careful to avoid such injuries.
It won’t be wrong to say that sportspeople are more prone to getting injured, and so do children. The common factor between both is the intensity of activities performed. Children keep running and jumping here & there while playing with friends or even when they are at home. Similarly, athletes also keep making high-energy movements according to the nature of their sports. Thus, both are prone to injuries where the ones affecting the musculoskeletal system are the most common.
Sometimes, the injuries are so severe that conventional treatment methods fail, and, in such cases, surgery remains the only option left. Surgery often involves the use of Orthopedic Implants Plates and other Trauma Instruments depending upon the injury.
Here, our complete focus will be on discussing the injuries faced by athletes during summers.
Common Summer Injuries Faced by Athletes
The shoulder joint is one of the most used and complex joints in our body and hence, it is also highly prone to getting injured. Athletes often face shoulder injuries due to overuse and a direct impact. Besides this, overstretching of the joint is also among the reasons that cause shoulder injuries in sportspeople. Dislocations, misalignments, and muscle strains are the most reported shoulder injuries in people.
The best way to minimize the risk of such injuries is to do strength training and participate in warm-up sessions before the match. Sportspeople who play sports like baseball, basketball, tennis, and cricket are at high risk of shoulder injuries.
Besides the shoulder, the knee joint is also among the most used joints in our body. Thus, this location is prone to get injured due to one or the other reasons.
Knee dislocations and sprains are commonly seen in athletes, especially those who play soccer, football, and basketball. Above all, ACL tears are also frequently reported in sportspeople. Severe knee injuries may require partial or complete knee joint replacement.
Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains are experienced by athletes too often as overstretching or overuse of a particular joint may result in tendon, muscle, or ligament tear. A brace may be required in severe sprains or strains along with the inability to use the affected area.
Knee, wrist, and ankle are among the commonest locations where sprains are experienced the most.
Fractures are common and they affect people of all age groups. Those who continuously stay engaged in high-energy activities and those who are suffering from osteoporosis are at high risk of fractures.
Athletes who play contact sports are more prone to fractures and depending upon the exact cause, the severity of the condition is decided. Severe fractures often require stabilization with orthopedic implants and instruments using open reduction and internal fixation.
