include concussions, contusions, fractures, and haematomas. A concussion is a violent jarring or shock to the head that causes a temporary jolt to the brain. If severe enough, or recurrent, concussions can cause brain damage. A haematoma is a bleeding or pooling of blood between the tissue layers covering the brain or inside the brain. All of these injuries can be caused by impact to the head from a fall, forceful shaking of the head, a blow to the head, or whiplash. Whiplash is an injury to the neck caused by an abrupt jerking motion of the head. It is necessary to always wear helmets for contact sports and when doing activities like biking to prevent head injuries. Neck injuries
are among the most dangerous. One can hurt the neck through a sudden traumatic injury in sports like mountain climbing, skydiving, horseback riding, gymnastics, diving, or boxing. Neck injuries include strains, fractures, contusions, and sprains. Most neck injuries are caused by impact to the head or neck sustained during a fall or a blow. The neck can also be injured a little at a time. Too much strain on the neck can cause increasing pain, sometimes only on one side of the neck. If the injury is severe and there is a chance that the neck might be injured, it is very important to keep the injured person still with their head held straight while someone calls for emergency medical help. Foot injuries
can include ligament strains, stress fractures, heel bruises, and bursitis. Because one’s feet support all of the weight and must absorb a lot of force over and over again, they can be particularly susceptible to injury. Sex Organs
When it comes to injuries to the sex
organs, boys and men usually suffer more trauma than girls because the penis and testicles are outside the body and lack natural protection during contact sports. They should always wear athletic supporters, or in some sports a cup, to protect the genitals from serious injury. Injuries to the uterus or ovaries are rare, but breast injuries are common complaints among girls. As the breasts develop, they can often be sore, and a blow from a softball or a jab from an elbow, can be painful. Girls should wear supportive sports bras while playing sports or exercising. Back injuries
include sprains, fractures, contusions, and strains and are caused by twists or overexertion of back muscles during bending or lifting movements. These injuries can occur in contact sports like football, weight lifting, skating, gymnastics, dancing, and basketball.Hand injuries
include fractures, dislocations, and sprains and often occur in contact sports such as football, hockey etc. Hand injuries can result from a fall that forces the hand or fingers backward, a forceful impact to the hands, or a direct blow.
