Sports Injuries Q & A

What are sports injuries?

 

Sports injuries result from any type of exercise or physical activity, such as playing sports or taking a hike. There are two main types of sports injuries:

Acute injuries

These injuries happen suddenly, like when you fall or have an accident. Common acute injuries include sprains, strains, and broken bones.

Overuse injuries

These injuries are the result of repetitive motions, such as running or swinging a golf club. Overuse injuries develop slowly over time and often become worse without treatment. Common overuse injuries include runner’s knee, tendonitis, and golfer’s elbow.
