Sports Injuries

Runners, joggers, baseball players, golfers, dancers, and gymnasts are all prone to sports injuries; however, sports injuries are not limited to athletes – anyone may obtain a sports injury. But, for those who frequently participate in physically demanding activities, it can be very frustrating to get injured.

Sports injuries are often a combination of cartilage, ligament, tendon, and muscle damage – whether it be a ligament tear or partial tear or a sprain. Don’t let the pain from the injury persist; the longer you wait to receive help, the more damage you may cause to the injured area and the longer it will take for you to get back to the sport you love.

Accidents, trips, falls, sprains, and strains happen for a variety of reasons.  Here is a list of a few common causes:

  • Overuse injury
  • Over-training
  • Poor technique
  • Improper use of equipment
  • Unsafe training/exercise environment   

Sport Injury Symptoms

  • Sudden pain
  • Swelling
  • Muscle soreness
  • Tender joints
  • unable to place weight on leg or foot
