Top 5 Worst Sporting Injuries
Any athlete knows that there’s no gain without pain. Sometimes, however, the pain can be devastating. Whether you’re an amateur golfer or a pro footballer, you can get any one of these if you’re not careful. So here’s our list of some of the worst sporting injuries an athlete can sustain, and what to do about them.
#1. Broken Ankle
Your ankle is so easy to break. It’s a fragile joint between your leg and your foot and, if you run a lot, you can easily slip and fracture the bones. If you do Gymnastics, you can fall awkwardly on your foot and fracture it, or even in golf if you slip into a hole and cause serious damage. If you’re suffering from a bad sprain, you can accidently break your ankle by not resting it properly. You won’t be able to walk and you’ll suffer severe bruising. You’ll almost definitely need a brace and a cast and you’ll be off your feet for up to eight weeks.
