Sports Medicine Q & A
What are common sports injuries?
Whether you’re an amateur, enthusiast, or professional athlete, sports injuries can occur due to a multitude of causes. The physical strain of regular training and competition can increase your risk of injury, including:
- Strained, swollen, or torn muscles
- Knee injuries like ACL, MCL, or cartilage tears
- Achilles tendon ruptures
- Rotator cuff tears
- Labrum tears
You can have an acute sports injury or repetitive strain injury that develops over time. Your pain can be sharp or dull and can be continuous, or elicited by specific movements.
You might have severe pain that gets in the way of your ability to move, or more mild pain that can still interfere with your movement, altering your gait or the way your body moves, which can decrease your physical performance.
