Exercising is good for you, but sometimes you can injure yourself when you play sports or exercise. Accidents, poor training practices, or improper gear can cause them. Some people get hurt because they are not in shape. Not warming up or stretching enough can also lead to injuries.
The most common sports injuries are
- Sprains and strains
- Knee injuries
- Swollen muscles
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Pain along the shin bone
- Rotator cuff injuries
Nearly all sports injuries cause swelling, which usual goes hand-in-hand with pain,redness and heat. When it occurs within a joint, swelling often causes pain, stiffness, and may produce a clicking sound as the tendons snap over one another after having been pushed into a new position.
Physiotherapists with the goal of helping you to determine what may be causing your pain.
When to get medical attention for common sports injuries
We know you're tough — but you also need to be smart. If you suspect a serious injury or if you have any of these signs, see a doctor:
- Deformities in the joint or bone — it looks “crooked,” or moves abnormally
- You cannot bear weight or can't use the limb without it “giving way”
- Excessive swelling
- Changes in skin color beyond mild bruising
