Types of sports injuries
Different sports injuries produce different types of symptoms and complications. The most common types of sports injuries include:
- Sprains. Overstretching or tearing of the ligaments results in a sprain. Ligaments are the pieces of tissue that connect two bones in a joint.
- Strains. Overstretching or tearing muscles or tendons results in a sprain. Tendons are thick, fibrous cords of tissue that connect bone to the muscle. Strains are commonly mistaken for sprains.
- Knee injuries. These types of injuries interfere with how the knee joint moves. It could range from an overstretch to a tear in the muscles or tissues in the knee.
- Swollen muscles. Swelling is a natural reaction to an injury. Swollen muscles may also be painful and weak.
- Achilles tendon ruptures. The Achilles tendon is a thin, powerful tendon at the back of your ankle. During sports, this tendon can break or rupture. Due to the ruptures, you may experience sudden and severe pain along with difficulty walking.
- Fractures. Bone fractures are also known as broken bones.
- Dislocations. Sports injuries may dislocate a bone in your body. This can be painful and leads to swelling and weakness.
- Rotator cuff injury. The rotator cuff keeps your shoulder moving in all directions. A tear in any of these muscles can weaken the rotator cuff.
