If you think only the athletes need to be careful about injuries so as not to jeopardize their million-dollar careers, think again.
Even ordinary mortals – like you and us – need to take care of ourselves, too, for injuries may also do harm on our little-known preoccupations.
We cannot blame if athletes always come into the spotlight when we talk about physical injuries because of the price they command as well as the celebrity status they have achieved by entertaining us in the sports they excel in.
Major injuries to globally known sports personalities send shock waves not only to the sports community but to other sectors as well, more prominently the different businesses that hold some stakes in sports like the apparel industry, the TV industry, and the products and services they endorse. In short, their personal injuries affect, one way or another, the whole economy. It’s like saying, when the elephant sneezes, the rat catches a cold.
Take the case of former world number one golfer, Tiger Woods. When he underwent a career-threatening knee injury and spent a considerable time resting and recovering, TV ratings of the game plummeted. The fans’ interest in the game waned while he was away from the golf course. Similarly, sales of the products he was promoting took a dip in direct proportion to the plunge in his ranking.
Injuries to Ordinary People
Just because we are not popular like Tiger Woods we never mind taking care of our physique. The reverse is true: We need care and caution all the more.
For one, we have our own little careers to attend to. Two, our careers may be supporting the needs of some other people like our family, senior parents, or any other dependents. Three and more important, we don’t have that much money to foot the bill for expensive medical treatments, unless we are covered by good insurance packages.
Caution Involves Availing of Treatments
But no matter how careful we are in our movements, there really are occasions when we trip or fall or twist an arm or knee resulting in musculoskeletal problems such as sprain, strain, or even dislocation or fracture.
Or even if we are not vigorously moving at all, we can still contract some forms of muscular pains. Take the case of a stiff neck.
Musculoskeletal issues, no matter how minor, need to be checked. We may never know the underlying causes why they occur unless they are assessed by the experts in the field, in this case, the physical therapists. Leaving the aches and soreness untreated may also result in or develop into more severe cases.
