Common Types of Sports Injuries

Ankle Sprain

This type of injury most commonly occurs when the ankle twists inward. It results in pain, swelling, and difficulty walking.

Knee Ligament Tear

This injury can be a partial, complete, or side-to-side tear known as an MCL (medial collateral ligament) sprain. The symptoms include swelling and joint pain with the inability to bear weight on the leg.

Fractures

This type of injury occurs when there is a break in the bone. There are many fractures, including stress fractures, hairline fractures, and compound fractures. Symptoms include intense leg pain, swelling, and deformity.

Rehabilitation Can Help Athletes Recover Quicker

Rehabilitation refers to the process of restoring an individual to their optimal level of function after an injury or surgery. You can do this through various methods such as physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic care. You can significantly reduce recovery time by integrating these therapies into the rehab process.
