Most Common Sports Injuries

Common Sports Injuries

Sporting injuries are a common issue faced by those who exercise regularly or have a very active lifestyle. They usually occur when you’ve overexerted yourself or have pushed your usual exercise limits a bit farther than normal. They can also occur from not performing sporting activities properly, putting undue pressure on specific parts of the body.

The ankles, knees and the back are more commonly seen in sports injuries although any muscle, ligament or joint can be affected. Usually an injury is shown by soreness in the area, swelling and bruising. Immediate rest should be sought first of all and the application of heat and/or cold packs can often be very effective at bringing down any bruising and swelling. Painkillers such as Paracetamol or Ibuprofen can help with any pain but if you think you have a serious injury such as broken or fractured bones then you should seek medical attention.

Some of the most common sporting injuries people incur are:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Hamstring strains
  • Shin splints
  • Pulled groin
  • Knee injuries (Patellofemoral syndrome)
  • Knee injuries (ACL tear)
  • Tennis elbow

Sprains & Strains

Sprains can happen to a number of elements of the body, but the most common area is the ankle. Sprains are injuries to ligaments, (the tough bands that connect bones in a joint). Stretching your ligaments past their limits can deform or tear them. Strains on the other hand are injuries to muscle fibres or tendons, again the most common area to incur a strain is the hamstring (the back of the thigh). Strains are called pulled muscles as they relate to overstretching or overusing a muscle which causes tears in the muscle fibres or tendons. If you have carried out more sporting activities than usual or have just started exercising, you may suffer from this. Rest assured, they are not long-lasting injuries and with the right treatment such as stretches and rest they will heal back up in no time.
