Sports Injury Rehab and Therapy St. Petersburg
More people in the Tampa Bay area are involved in physical activities than ever. Regular participation in sports has proven physical, mental and emotional health benefits. However, higher sports participation also means a rise in sports injuries: over 8 million people are injured playing sports each year; 3.5 million of those are children.
A sports injury can occur during any sport and at any time.
Over half of sports injuries occur during practice rather than during competitive events. There are a number of factors that can put you at higher risk for a sports injury. A person’s risk for sports injuries goes up if they are trying a new activity, if they have warmed up inadequately, if they are older, or if they are only infrequently active. There are a number of injuries that can occur during sports. Acute sports injuries include fractures and sprains. Chronic ones such as tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis develop over time.
