The Importance of Treating Sports Injuries

Do you know what a sports injury is? To put it simply, it’s an injury you sustain while active. Sports injuries impact your tendons, muscles, joints, and bones. They can be incredibly painful and are typically the result of a fall, repetitive overuse, or improper posture. 

At Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness, our doctors are experts in diagnosing and treating sports injuries. That’s why they’ve compiled this helpful guide on why it’s important to treat your sports injury early.

When your sports injury is serious

It’s normal to have sore muscles when you're playing sports or working a job that’s physically strenuous. So, how do you know if your sports injury is serious or just everyday pain? We highly recommend you seek immediate care if you experience these problems:



Usually, if a sports injury isn’t serious, symptoms will subside after a day or two. So, if your symptoms last longer, it’s important to seek medical care right away. What’s especially important is your level of pain. If you’re in pain, even while resting than you should see a doctor.

Preventing sports injuries 

While you can’t stop all potential injuries from happening, you can prevent them, and you can take certain precautions that keep them less impactful. Some good tips for preventing sports injuries include:

If your job or sport requires repetitive motions, be sure to avoid overdoing it. For example, don't over-pitch when you're playing baseball or overswing when golfing.
