What are Common Sports Injuries?
Participating in sports is an excellent way to stay fit and healthy. However, regular physical training and competition can increase your risk of repetitive use and acute injuries. Some of the most common sports injuries include:
- Sprains and strains
- Achilles tendon ruptures
- Knee injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
- Rotator cuff injuries
Repetitive movement not only causes gradual injuries like tendinitis, but it also causes weakness and instability that increases your risk of acute injuries, especially if you have an alignment issue or your form isn’t perfect.
