Sports Injuries

What are Sports Injuries?

The term “sports injuries” commonly refers to the injuries that are suffered during athletic activities. It also refers to injuries to ligaments and tendons that are not necessarily caused by sports activities. Almost any part of the body can suffer an injury during exercise or sports; however, ankles and knees are particularly prone to sports injuries.

The common causes of sports injuries include:

  • Accidents that result in a fall or a heavy blow
  • Use of inadequate equipment or workout technique
  • Indulging in a strenuous workout without warming up properly

While the symptoms of sports injuries vary depending on the area involved, some of the common symptoms include pain, inflammation, bruising, and restricted movement of the affected area. While minor sports injuries can be easily treated by apply an ice pack and taking rest, more severe injuries may require specialised treatment by a qualified physiotherapist. In addition to designing an exercise plan for pain alleviation and muscle strengthening, a physiotherapist can also educate you on to prevent the recurrence of sports injuries.
