Knee pain is incredibly common. Knee pain is a special problem for athletes — over half of all athletes suffer from this.Sports, exercise and other activities can cause muscle strains, tendinitis, and more serious injuries to ligaments and cartilage.

Common causes include

Back pain can start at your feet — specifically with the shoes you’re wearing

Few of us are strangers to lower back pain. In fact, more than 50 percent of working Americans suffer from it each year, according to the American Chiropractic Association. Not only that, but back pain ranks as the number two reason people see a doctor

Sometimes the cause is obvious, like a sports injury or bending the wrong way. Other times, however, the reason might be surprising, like when the culprit turns out to be your feet and improper footwear. But finding the right shoes — and there are many choices — can be all the back pain treatment you need.

Back Pain and Footwear: What’s the Connection?

Though your feet and favorite stilettos can seem far removed from your back, they really can be related and contributing to your pain and, in turn, stress and fatigue.

Back pain and footwear can also be connected through poor choices made as consumers and fashionistas. For example, those high heels can throw off alignment and add extra stress and strain on the lower back.

How to avoid injuries while playing basket ball ?

basket

Injuries while playing basketball are commonly caused by falls, player contact, awkward landings, abrupt changes in direction and being hit by the ball. Common types of injuries are:

  • Injuries to the lower body, mostly ankle sprains
  • Injuries to the hand, fingers, head, face and teeth
  • Knee injuries – females are at higher risk of knee injury than males
  • Overuse injuries – are most common in higher level players due to the duration and intensity of play.

 

Basketball tip

The five injuries diagnosed most frequently were, in order, ankle sprains, finger sprains, finger fractures, knee sprains, and facial lacerations. Girls had a higher rate of knee sprains and finger sprains, while boys had a higher rate of ankle sprains. To me, the increased risk of knee sprains in basketball among girls is not surprising given the much higher risk of ACL injury in female athletes in all sports

 

Ankle Sprains

When the foot is forcibly rolled inward or outward, ligaments that hold the ankle in place can overstretch or tear, resulting in an ankle sprain.

Symptoms:

  • Pain on the overstretched portion of the ankle
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Warmth to the touch

 

Treatment:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation (for the first 24 to 48 hours post-injury)
