Ice Fishing Reports More Severe Types of Injuries
Ice fishing may seem like a relaxing pastime, however, it can result in broken bones, concussions and other types of injuries, according to surgeons from the Mayo Clinic.
“Ice fishing has become more popular in the last few years, and, with this, we have seen an increase in ice fishing-related injuries,” study author Dr. Cornelius Thiels, a surgical resident, said in a hospital news release. “What is even more concerning is that ice fishing injuries tend to be more severe than injuries associated with traditional fishing,” Thiels said.
“We hope this research will bring awareness to the safety issues that surround this pastime and help prevent similar incidents,” he said.
Ice fishing, like traditional fishing, is a favorite pastime of many who live in colder climate regions, however, many healthcare professionals reported that ice fishing can result in more severe types of injuries than traditional fishing. Bone fractures and concussions are only some of the common injuries associated with the activity. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
