Injuries incurred during a play or sport are called sports injuries. 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
HOW IS SPORTS INJURY DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of a sports injury is based on doing X-ray and scans along with checking for inflammation of joints.
HOW IS SPORTS INJURY TREATED?
Treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery.
