Summer is a season of fun and adventure, but it also brings its fair share of injuries. From active kids and young adults to seniors enjoying outdoor activities, injuries can happen to anyone. In this blog post, we’ll explore common summer injuries across various age groups and populations and explain how Movement Theory Physical Therapy & Wellness can play a crucial role in recovery. We’ll also discuss the benefits of out-of-network physical therapy, which can offer greater freedom in treatment options.
Injuries Among Children and Adolescents:
1. Sprains and Fractures: Active youngsters are prone to sprains and fractures, often from playing sports or engaging in outdoor activities.
2. Swimmer’s Shoulder: Swimmers may develop shoulder pain due to repetitive motions in the pool.
Injuries Among Young Adults:
1. Runner’s Knee: Young adults often enjoy running during the summer, which can lead to overuse injuries like runner’s knee.
2. Back Strain from Yard Work: Gardening and yard work can strain the back, causing pain and discomfort.
Injuries Among Seniors:
1. Falls: Seniors may experience falls during outdoor activities, leading to fractures or soft tissue injuries.
2. Arthritis Flare-Ups: The heat of summer can exacerbate arthritis symptoms, but so can the ever-changing barometric pressures as summer transitions through fall into winter.
