When sprained, the hamstring becomes very tender and often missed judged (Henderson 3). When a player sprained their hamstring, the player must ice,rest, and elevate it (3). The hamstring is so tricky because as the player walks, the hamstring is being stretched as is constantly loosing up (Wilson 3). So as the player get closer and closer to game time, the player may feel like the hamstring is ok because of how loose the hamstring is but the hamstring is not nearly healed (3) The hamstring is a valuable muscle and can be sprained by running to hard without the proper equipment and stretching. When the weather gets cooler, the hamstring along with our muscles become more vulnerable to become sprained or injured (Fink 2).
The sooner you do, the faster your recovery will be. You may also want to do simulated uphill running on a treadmill, as some people have found uphill running is less painful. Only run as far as you can without feeling pain, and ice the injury. You may also find that bicycling, elliptical training, and swimming are good exercises to help your knee to recover. If you experience pain when you wake up that persists throughout the day, you should take a few days off and take it slowly when you return to running.
To prepare for the physical demands of the academy and for a career in law enforcement I needed to increase the intensity of my workout and adjust my workouts to include more cardio, body weight, and core exercises. I also make sure that l maintain my strength through weight training. My workouts are designed to help me deal with the physical demands of working in law enforcement. Focus a lot of my exercises focus on strengthening my back, core, legs, arms, and increasing my stamina. Having a strong back will decrease the chances of back injury due constant bending over, getting in out of the vehicles, and having to wear a weighted duty belt for long periods of time.
Common causes are bone spurs and repetitive stress on the rotator cuff. Bone spurs are caused by an inflammation of the surrounding tissue, which triggers the osteoblast, or bone building cells, to build more bone in the area (6). This can lead to a sharp spine on the bone, which will rub against the muscle and can eventually start to cause a tear (6). Grade II injuries are also commonly caused by repetitive motion putting stress on the muscles (5). This is especially common in people who do a lot of overhead lifting (3).
An athlete can prevent a muscle injury by taking precautionary actions for their body’s safety and if a muscle injury does occur, using the RICE method to heal will sufficiently heal the muscle back to good health if surgery isn’t need. To be able to prevent muscle injuries athletes first have to know what kinds of muscle injuries are out there and their symptoms. In the world today the two most common muscle injuries are sprains and strains. A muscle sprain is a stretch or tear in a ligament, which is the band of tissue that holds two bones together. A muscle strain is a stretch or tear in a tendon, which is the band of tissue that holds the muscle to the bone (Ratini).
The band of tissue that connects your calf muscles to your heel bone is used when walking, running, pushing or jumping upwards with your foot. Age is another cause of this condition. Achilles tendon weakens with age, making the tendon more vulnerable to injury. Weekend sports or increasing particular sports intensity may cause or make this condition worse. A list of possible causes of Achilles tendinitis: Flat Arches.
The anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, prevents forward movement of the tibia, off of the femur. The ACL also prevents hyperextension of the knee, hence it allows for the knee joint to be stable and allows for dynamic motion. For those who suffer an ACL injury and do not have hopes to continue competing in athletics at a high level, the non-surgery option is available for treatment. The patient will need to endevour many hours of physical therapy and rehabilitation and wear a hinged brace. With rehab and physical therapy, the patient will feel almost back to their pre-injury self, but they are very suseptible for a re-tear.
The fact that you can’t do anything to avoid the injury because if you play overhead sport you going to still doing after something happen with your shoulder. For me, just stretch well and warm up is very important thing for overhead players. Also, the way you working out in the gym is very important because if you don 't know what you doing you can get hurt or putting too much weights can affect your slap tear. Being an athlete who has gone through shoulder injury, i can see in my expectative that is something you don 't care in the moment if you got the pain you just want to keep throwing after the pain is very serious and you need to stop. I never had a really shoulder injury, just a pain for one month but after I rest I was fine, But I know many players most of them pitchers that have shoulder problem all the time it just the way the throw the ball overhead all the time with that movement that is no right for your arm.
Injuries do occur, but sometimes you also have to wonder is that just life happening to us and did it happen for a reason. We may never know, but for now we can’t always blame the sport and we will try to make it as safe as possible with still keeping the game as close to what it is now. The goods of football include being able to learn how to pick yourself up when you’re down. It happens to everyone no matter how good you are you’ll lose at some point and sometimes you just get hit and it knocks you down. You learn how to be a team player and how to cooperate with people and how to get along with those that maybe you don’t even like.
