Sports Injuries

What is a Sports Injury?

Exercising and participating in sports is good for you, but sometimes these activities can lead to injuries. Accidents, poor training practices, or improper gear can cause injuries; however, many injuries are caused by body imbalances or overworking muscles. Some people get hurt because they are not in shape, or they progress their activity too rapidly. Improper warm-ups can also lead to injuries.

The most common sports injuries are:

  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Neck and Back Pain
  • Joint Sprains
  • Muscle Strains
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Knee Injuries
  • Foot and Ankle Problems

Acute injuries usually occur suddenly and may result in sudden and severe pain, the inability to bear weight on a limb, or the inability to move the affected part of the body. Chronic injuries usually result from overuse of one area of the body over a period of time. Symptoms of chronic injuries include soreness, dull aching pain, pain during participation in physical activity, and pain that may not resolve for days after the conclusion of the activity.
