Understanding Sports-Related Injuries
Which Sports Injuries are Most Prevalent?
Whether you’re an avid athlete or just enjoy a casual game now and then, sports injuries can sneak up on anyone. Activities that involve high-speed movements or repetitive motions, especially those that stress the joints, can lead to injuries. Some of the most common ones include:
- ACL tears
- Ankle twists and sprains
- Shin splints
- Tennis elbow
- Tendon injuries … and the list goes on. Remember, it’s not just about the sport; sometimes, a simple misstep can lead to an injury.
How Do I Recognize a Sports Injury?
The signs of a sports injury can range from subtle to glaringly obvious. From persistent pain and swelling to limited mobility or even an inability to use the affected area, it’s essential to listen to your body.
