Female athletes' health concerns: A lifespan at Pondicherry
AUTHOR(S): Dr. A Praveen
ABSTRACT: Exercise benefits women of all ages and has been linked to better health and well-being throughout time. Heat sickness is more common in young adults and adolescents than in children. Injuries to the growth plates are prevalent in children's sports. Teens are more likely to sustain similar ailments, particularly ligament and tendon injuries. Stress fractures, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, and patella femoral pain syndrome are all common in teenage and adult females. In athletes in these age groups, physicians should look for pelvic floor dysfunction and the female athlete triad. In adult females, exercise can help with disease prevention and management. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advise moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week for at least 30 minutes. However, as athlete ages, they become more aware of their environment. As a result, women and girls may confront difficulties throughout their lives.
