There are two main types of injury related to sports, a traumatic injury which occurs suddenly due to an impact or sudden strained movement; or an overuse injury which can happen after a single activity or can build up over time with repetitive strain on a particular part of the body. Sports injuries include damage to the bones, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. You can reduce the risk of injury by keeping your body in good shape and not overloading past your body’s capability and fitness level. Making sure you warm up and down sufficiently when doing sport, use of the correct equipment and the right technique are also factors that can help reduce the risk of injury. It is not advisable to ignore sporting injuries, healing may be slower and the chances of a full recovery lessen without correct diagnosis and treatment.
