Track and Field Injuries

Track and Field Injuries

track and fieldDo you have children in high school or college that run track and field? Are you a runner yourself? Well according to the journal Medicine and Sports Science, 70 to 80 percent of all track and field injuries are related to running events. And of these injuries, they overwhelming majority occur during practice.

What injuries you could have depend on the specific sport that’s involved. Long distance injuries are usually a result of repetitive stress injuries. Sprains, strains, stress fractures, and exertional compartment syndrome, are all conditions and traumas that can be caused by long distance running. Hurdles can cause more traumatic injuries such as ligament sprains, meniscus tear, or injure your ACL. Sprint injuries account for 27.7% of all injuries, with long distance at 17.3%, and then jump events is 14.1%

If you or a family member has suffered from a sports related injury, don’t hesitate to get treatment. Dr. Ronald S. Kvitne is an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in sports related injuries.
