Keep a Close Eye on Your Meniscus Tear
(http://ow.ly/QFfL30mgTLA)

A meniscus tear can happen after a sports-related injury. Many athletes experience this injury after a long offseason. When the tear is small, it usually does not require surgery. It may be a simple form of treatment that includes icing and elevating the knee. When a more severe tear occurs, you will experience instability. These more severe injuries require surgery and more custom-treatments. The muscle needs time to fuse back together. After a surgery, give yourself 3-6 months to fully recover.

Exercising for Health - Not Weight Loss
(http://ow.ly/4ttm30mgTLy)

A study published in the International Journal of Liberal Arts and Social Science discovered that a woman’s motivation to exercising plays a vital role in her health. For example, women who exercised for weight loss did not experience a difference in progress than their peers who exercise for overall health. It was found that when a woman exercises for her overall health and wellbeing, her quality of life is usually better due to an active routine and better health stats.

Unexpected Muscle Pains May Have a Source
(http://ow.ly/tek930mgTLu)

Muscle pain is not always caused by a sports injury or work injury. Many muscles pains are caused due to overexertion, trauma to an area of the body and viral infections. These traumas to the body manifest themselves much differently than a traditional sports injury. Stress can cause muscles to become week. Taking good self-care is an excellent way to ensure your body rests when needed and does not overexert itself.

What Daily Activities Look Like When You Have Carpal Tunnel
(http://ow.ly/9SyL30lYiJV)

Carpal tunnel syndrome can look a little different depending on the individual. Individuals who have difficulty with carpal tunnel syndrome often have challenges picking up objects, holding objects still and may have trouble with everyday tasks such as buttoning a shirt or writing with a pen. Some patients can complete these tasks but do slow slower than usual. Don't let your carpal tunnel syndrome control your daily activities.

Assessing Injuries in Youth Sports
(http://ow.ly/fT0C30lYiJT)

Youth sports are a breeding ground for injuries. When assessing injuries, sports medicine doctors have to take into account how the injury happened, the degree of the injury, the impact on the child's physical and emotional health and the treatment options available for the specific injury. Doctors are learning to assess these injuries early to prevent future and more permanent damage. Assessing may be the first step, prevention is the second.

CrossFit is Popular; The Injuries are Not
(http://ow.ly/2hwO30lYiJS)

CrossFit is a popular workout routine. But, it comes with its fair share of injuries. How can you minimize the chance of getting a CrossFit related injury? Take it slow. If you're new to CrossFit, go at your own pace. Scale movements to your fitness level. Over time, you will gradually increase your fitness level and are more likely to complete a workout. Of course, be sure to heal your injuries - don't let an injury go untreated!
