What is a Sports Injury?

The term sports injury, in the broadest sense, refers to the kinds of injuries that most commonly occur during sports or exercise.

Some sports injuries result from accidents; others are due to poor training practices, improper equipment, lack of conditioning, or insufficient warm-up and stretching.

Although virtually any part of your body can be injured during sports or exercise, the term is usually reserved for injuries that involve the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones, and associated tissues like cartilage, ligaments or tendons.

Sports injuries are often caused from overuse and over training, such as runner’s knee or tennis elbow where the player pushes there body to the limit.
