Common Sports Injuries

Sports activities can pose varying risks of injury, and it's important to be aware of the sports that frequently contribute to such incidents. The sports that are most commonly associated with injuries include running, swimming, mountain biking, skiing, basketball, baseball/softball, soccer, football, and even golf and tennis.

Sports related injuries can happen to anyone, no matter if they are a hobbyist, lifelong, or professional athlete. These are the most common sports injuries we treat that can occur in the shoulders, elbows, knees, or ankles:

  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Tendinitis
  • Instability from ligament tears

When you experience any of the sports mentioned above injuries, it is crucial to recognize the signs that may indicate the need for a consultation with Dr. Applonie at Capital Surgical Associates.

If you notice worsening pain, weakness, an inability to bear weight on the injured extremity, joint instability, or if the injury hampers your ability to participate in your sport, it is advisable to seek professional medical attention.

Additionally, the presence of bone or joint deformity and swelling should not be ignored, as they may indicate the need for surgical intervention to promote proper healing and restore functionality.
