Who is at Risk for Injuries and what Treatment Options Should I Choose

Accidents happen all the time and people get injured for numerous reasons! Athletes fall while running, sports stars twist ankles or bash their knees in, the elderly tumble while shuffling in the driveway, kids fall off their bikes and crack an elbow, weapon mishaps occur to anyone not being careful, car accidents demolish organs on impact and freakish wounds are unstoppable.

Injuries are known as physical trauma. Injuries occur when outside forces cause damage to the body, in unexpected, harmful ways. Injuries can be life-threatening and be the foundation for much-added pain throughout your body.

Who is at risk for injuries and why?

Anyone that plays a sport has an increased risk for potential injuries to any part of their body. We know that accidents can occur to anyone, anywhere. Therefore, athletic gear is enforced. Kids are forced to wear helmets, cups, body armor, elbow and knee pads, as well as chest protectors.

The elderly are specifically at risk of breaking bones, fractures weaken bone areas or sprained wrists due to not having the same agile mobility as they had in their younger years. Also, osteoporosis is more likely to occur in older adults. Osteoporosis is defined as a medical condition where your bones are brittle, they become weak due to your body not making new bones fast enough, and this makes people easily prone to fractures.

Everyone is at risk for bodily harm in an unforeseeable accident with a firearm or automobile catastrophe. You can lower your risks by not drinking and driving, going the speed limit, wearing your seatbelt, not texting and driving, paying attention to the road and do not get distracted from other people in the car.
