There are certain sports in particular that set up our athletes for knee injuries, which we’ll go over below so you can keep this information in mind if you engage in these sports and activities.
Below Dr. Albert Stabile Jr. D.C. goes over a few sports in which athletes are more likely to sustain a knee injury.
All that kicking that goes on during karate matches and MMA bouts is hard on the knee. Now imagine the fact that these fighters probably throw hundreds of kicks with each leg every single day for years leading up to their competition fights. That’s a lot of wear and tear on your knees, hips, and even your spine.
Open field running, kicking, and making sudden stops and colliding with other players makes soccer a dangerous sport for your knees.
We see a lot of basketball players for back and even knee injuries, which chiropractic care is often an effective drug-free method of pain relief and correction. Basketball players especially risk sustaining an injury to their legs, in particular, their knees and ankles. It happens from running, jumping high, and landing.
