Athletes Are At A Greater Risk Of Sustaining A Neck Injury…

September 28, 2016

Athletes are at greater risk of sustaining a neck injury due to physical activity. Whether the sport is skiing, gymnastics, soccer, running, golf, or tennis, the neck suffers a lot more stress, absorption of pressure, twisting, turning, and even physical impact. This action puts stress on the neck that can cause injury to even the finest and fittest athletes. Mainly neck pain is due to degenerative changes that happen in the neck. Trauma to the neck of a young athlete may cause pain in the cervical spine, the neck joints, and the supporting musculature. Because of the vital importance of these structures, athletes with complaints of neck pain or injury must be thoroughly evaluated so that appropriate management and medical appointment decisions can be made. The best advice to all athletes is warm up before you play!
