How Could Sports Injury Occur?
Any injury sustained while participating in an athletic activity falls under the umbrella term “sports injury.” There are a number of ways to get injured, including lifting heavy weights at the gym, running in poorly-fitting shoes, and over-exerting yourself on the baseball or soccer field.
Getting treatment for a sports injury as soon as possible is critical for its recovery. Based on the intensity of your injury, your medical history, and whether or not surgery is required, your recovery time and treatment options will change.
What Sports injury Can I have?
The most common types of sports-related injuries include:
- Shin splints
Shin splints, also known as “medial tibial stress syndrome,” is a medical term for pain in the shin bones. In most cases, the shinbone and the bordering connective tissues are stressed, resulting in this pain. Shin splints can be severe and unbearable, but they are preventable with the right footwear, pre-exercise warming up, and leg and core muscle strengthening exercises.
- Pulled muscle or Strain.
You have “pulled muscle” or “strain” when the tendon that connects your muscle to your bone is stretched beyond its breaking point. Overstretching a tendon increases the likelihood that it will tear again.
Stretching a ligament that connects two bones results in a sprain. It is more likely than not that a ligament will be overstretched again after it has been sprained.
- Injuries to one’s knees.
Injuries to your knee are prevalent because it is the most complicated joint in your body. Injuries to the knee can range from a subtle aching in the hip to a more serious injury like a torn ACL.
