Sports-Related Injuries

Sports-Related Injuries Discussion

What was your worst sports-related injury?  Was this something that you recovered from or did you learn to change your game to accomodate the injury?

When I was in third grade minding my own business playing hopscotch, a boy playing soccer kicked a ball that hit me in the head and the next thing I knew I was waking up in the nurse's office. Like Bret and his rollerblading, I have never been interested in soccer since!

I spent 5 years with knee pain which slowly escalated and became chronic this past summer. The problem with something like knee pain is that it is minor enough to try and deal with. I knew nothing was broken so I did not get it looked until the pain level reached 10. My diagnosis was Patellofemoral Pain, also known as Runners Knee. It is most common in women because of the way out hips and knees are aligned. Knowing how much pain I was in, I was shocked to hear that the treatment was exercise. Strength training, stretching and patience are the trip with Runners Knee. It may not seem like the worse injury, however, or those who also have this they know that it is not a walk in park.

And the worst thing about knee pain is that later in life it seems to gradually turn into arthritis.

I've had 1 major sports related injury in my life. I broke my hand while playing basketball in high school. I learned to be a bit more controlled while playing. I also had one minor sports injury. I broke a tooth while rollerblading. I learned to never rollerblade again!

Luckily, my worst injury was only breaking a finger playing football.
