Sports injuries are injuries that happen when engaging in sports or exercise. … Bruises, strains, sprains, tears, and broken bones can happen from sports injuries. Soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and bursae may be affected. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is another possible type of sports injury.
Sports injuries are usually caused by overuse, direct impact, or the application of force that is greater than the body part can structurally withstand. … An injury that occurs suddenly, for example a sprained ankle caused by an awkward landing, is called an acute injury
There are essentially two types of injuries: acute injuries and overuse injuries. Acute injuries are most commonly the result of a single, traumatic incident. Common examples are wrist fractures, ankle sprains, shoulder dislocations, and hamstring muscle strain.
The seven most common sports injuries are:
• Ankle sprain.
• Pulled groin.
• Hamstring strain.
• Shin splints.
• Knee injury: ACL tear.
• Knee injury: Patellofemoral syndrome — injury caused from the repetitive movement of your kneecap against your thigh bone.
• Tennis elbow (epicondylitis)
