In Motocross, it is common to experience acute injuries due to forceful impact from landing or falls such as ligament sprains (example: acromioclavicular joint near the shoulder or anterior cruciate ligament of the knee), fractures (example: wrist) or dislocation (ex. shoulder). Pain from overuse or repetitive impact is also possible at any joint or muscle of upper or lower body.

important information About concussions
Due to the potential for forceful impact, participants are at risk for concussions. It is important to seek medical advice after a head injury and physical therapists are part of the team of trained healthcare professionals that can treat this condition.
Together, your healthcare professional and your physical therapist can:
- perform baseline concussion testing including screens for cognition, concentration, memory and the neurological system.
- evaluate and treat post-concussion symptoms to help athletes safely progress back to normal sports participation.
