Sport injuries can occur while engaging in physical activities such as running, cycling and more.
Sport injuries are most commonly observed in areas of the body that are subjected to the most movement and stress on a regular basis. Some of the most prevalent sports injuries include tennis elbow, shoulder injuries, ankle strains, hip and lower back discomfort and Achilles tendonitis.
Complex movements, high impacts and the daily exercise regimen will stress the muscles, ligaments and muscle origins. Prolonged physical activity can cause the joints, surrounding muscles and ligaments to become strained. This may result in discomfort and aches in the body. Muscle tears, though uncommon, may also occur in smaller muscles and can impede muscular mobility.
Apart from the muscles and ligaments, exercise can also result in the tendonitis, or the inflammation of the tendon, which is a fibrous connective tissue that links the muscles to bones. One of the most common types of tendonitis is Achilles tendonitis which occurs when excessive strain has been put on the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body and it bears a lot of stress, especially during physical activities and sports. When this tendon becomes inflamed, individuals will often experience a burning pain, stiffness or swelling in that area. If left untreated, Achilles tendonitis can result in a rupture of the tendon.
Pain arising from sport injuries may sometimes be misinterpreted. For instance, a seemingly small injury in the heel of the foot could potentially lead to tiny nerve compression. Furthermore, most imaging is static while injuries are dynamic. Hence, tears and strains may occasionally show up on scans minimally as more than one muscle or tendon may be involved in the injury.
