Outdoor Sports Injury Care at Onto Orthopedics- Plano, TX

outdoor sportsComputers, television and video games are major sources of entertainment for the present generation. Unfortunately, this often produces couch-potatoes. Adults and children alike are spending their free time indoors in front of the tv or computer screen. The generations before the creation of the internet believed an outdoor sport was not only recreational but also therapeutic. Outdoor sports can give the body needed physical strength, alleviate anxiety, improve one’s mood and encourage problem solving and leadership.

Just like all good things, outdoor sports come with their own set of problems too. They can result in injuries ranging from mild sprains/strains to severe disabling conditions. Some of the injuries resulting from outdoor sport activities are sprains, strains, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, torn ligaments like ACLs (Anterior Cruciate ligament of the knee), Ulnar Collateral Ligament of the arm, head injuries, severe concussions, backaches, fractured vertebrae of the spine, broken ribs or bones of the body and so on. Common outdoor sports that can lead to such injuries are soccer, basketball, cricket, football or rugby, skiing, running, among others.4

Treatment will depend on how severe the injury is and the part of the body affected. If an injury is not very severe, it can be treated at home using PRICE therapy.
