An In Depth Look At The Top 5 Boxing Injuries



What are Cuts / Lacerations

Cuts (also known as lacerations) are when the skin splits and bleeds and are common place within boxing, usually occurring as a result of contact from an opponents' glove or head. Rarely is this type of injury seen as enough to stop a bout on their own, but they can seriously impair a fighter's ability to box. Generally, cuts themselves are not particularly problematic however deep tissue damage can mean a visit to the plastic surgeon.

During boxing, if bony prominence of a persons' brow takes the brunt of the damage, which in exceptional circumstances can lead to eye muscle damage, even after rest and recovery scar tissue can be a threat.

Interesting Fact: In the workplace around 30 per cent of all injuries involve cuts or lacerations, most of which are to the hands or fingers.



A Guide To Taping & Strapping



What can you do to prevent Cuts / Lacerations?

As well as wearing protective head gear a boxer needs to rely on their own defensive skill to prevent damaging knocks to the face, where cuts and lacerations usually happen.

Keeping the skin soft, smooth and supple will also help to maintain a healthy natural lustre - oils, lotions and body butters are ideal for this.



How to Treat Sprains, Strains & Bruises



What should you do if you suffer from Cuts / Lacerations?

During a bout, cuts can be filled with petroleum jelly in order to prevent further bleeding, but post bout with a high risk of infection it is important to have the area cleaned and dressed appropriately.

If the wound has dead or damaged skin attached this may need to be removed or trimmed as it can form a breeding ground for bacteria. Large wounds will need to be closed with sports tape, medical glue or stitches. Massage therapy has been shown to be a very effective way of breaking down scar tissue and the adhesions which are produced as a result of injury.
