ATLANTA, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Olympic athletes may be the best trained and physically conditioned people in the world, but they are still susceptible to back pain. BackPainRelief.net is releasing an infographic detailing the dangers of competitive sports—and how sports injuries can be avoided.
"Athletes are at risk for a number of injuries, and back pain is among the most common," said site manager Ty Collins. "We wanted to educate people about which sports were most risky and which injuries were most common. Most importantly, we want people to know how they can be safe and avoid serious injury."
The graphic displays a variety of sports injury information in a simple, attractive manner that anyone can understand. Factors such as which sports have the highest rate of back injury and what steps athletes can take to improve the odds of staying healthy are included. All of the data on the graphic come from cited and trusted sources.
Though its release coincides with the 2012 Summer Olympics, the infographic's data aren't exclusive to Olympic sports, making it applicable to any situation. It would be a dynamic addition to any health and wellness blog or relevant website. Amateur and professional athletes alike will find it useful.
The infographic is just one part of BackPainRelief.net's recent overhaul. "We did a full audit of the entire site, and realized that the content and overall user experience needed some fine tuning," Collins said. "We've updated all of our articles, we're creating videos, and most recently we've started working on this new infographic initiative. We've got a lot of exciting things going on; this is just the tip of the iceberg."
