Common types of sports injuries
Injuries may occur for a variety of reasons, including lack of appropriate footwear, improper training and activity. There are two forms of sports injuries.
The first is the acute traumatic or impactive injury and the second form is the exploitative injury. In the first form, injuries usually occur in a single blow from a forceful application. In the second form, injury occurs due to over-usage of tissues and nerves. Both of these can relate to chronic injuries that happen over a period of time.
The most common cause of sports related injuries is the sprain and strain of the joints and their surrounded tissue. Besides pain, the inflammatory response may form swelling of the injured area, discoloration of skin, and reduced range of motion of the joint.
Acupuncture is the best treatment overall, in treating all kinds of injuries caused by sports and workouts.
