At AFC Urgent Care Midlothian, our physicians and nurses are experienced in diagnosing and preventing sports injuries for both children and adults. Here are some common injuries that can arise from playing sports:
For all of these sports injuries, it is important to know your body’s limits and when to see a physician for treatment. Strains are one of the most common injuries that can happen from suddenly overstretching a muscle. Taking the necessary steps to prevent strains or pulls is an easy routine. Make sure you warm-up first to increase blood flow to your muscles. It is also important to stretch before and after you play a sport, in order to loosen your muscles and prevent tears. Also be aware of muscle fatigue when you are being active. It is very important to rest periodically while sprinting or jumping.
