Don’t Sit on the Sidelines
Sports injuries occur for a variety of reasons. Acute injuries occur when contact or force is too much for your muscles, joints or bones to absorb. A twisted ankle, an awkward landing, a fall off your bicycle, or a collision at second base are examples of this type of injury. Overuse injuries, on the other hand, are a gradual breakdown of body structures, usually due to repetitive motion. Poor technique and structural abnormalities can also contribute to the development of overuse injuries.
