    Have you suffered a back injury from gymnastics?


    Gymnastics is popular among some young people, but it does come with certain risks. Proper training can help prevent many injuries, but it is not uncommon for someone to suffer a back injury from gymnastics at any stage of their career or hobby.

    Many parts of the body can be prone to injury in gymnastics. For example, the feet and ankles can be exposed to potential injury through incorrect landing techniques. The lower back can be affected in as much as 80% of gymnasts, although often it will be mild back pain and nothing more. A back injury is very different.

    Proper training and prevention

    It is always much easier to prevent an injury occurring than to cope with it once you have it. That’s why an experienced and qualified trainer should always be called upon to give proper instruction to anyone who is learning to be a gymnast. This alone can prevent many injuries from occurring.

    Since injury is a risk of this sport, as it is in so many others, it can be difficult to tell whether a back injury from gymnastics was caused by pure bad luck or whether anything could have been done to prevent it. If the latter is true, there could be a possibility of getting some compensation that considers the injury, how bad it is and what the outcome could be in terms of recovery.

    Did you suffer a back injury from gymnastics?

    If you have, you will know how prolonged the recovery can be. Taking part in gymnastics before you are fully recovered can be a bad decision, and in some rare cases people must give up the sport entirely. If you think someone else provided poor training and taught you wrongly, you have an opportunity to speak to someone at Accident Advice Helpline concerning the idea of claiming compensation.
