Sports and injuries are often interconnected as there is a risk of physical harm or trauma while playing sports. Athletes are prone to injuries such as sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, and concussions, among others. These injuries can occur due to various factors such as overuse, poor technique, lack of conditioning, or external factors like collisions. Proper training, warm-ups, and safety equipment can help reduce the risk of injuries, but they cannot completely eliminate the possibility. Working with a physical therapist that understands the demands of your sport can be a useful guide in getting you back on the field or back on the court.
Common injuries include but are not limited to:
- Tennis injuries
- Basketball injuries
- Football injuries
- Soccer injuries
