“Sports injury” is a broad term which refers to any injury that occurs during sports or when exercising. They typically result from accidents, poor training practices, lack of proper conditioning, inadequate warm-up and improper equipment.
The most common types of sports injuries include dislocations, muscles sprains, tears of the ligaments and tendons, concussions, knee injuries, fractured bones, cuts and abrasions. There are two categories of sports injuries: acute and chronic. Acute sports injuries are those that occur abruptly, such as an ankle sprain caused by awkward landing. Chronic injuries are as a result of overuse of muscle groups or joints or poor management and treatment of acute injuries.
