Sports Injuries

Description

Sports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities. They can result from acute trauma, or from overuse of a particular body part. Traumatic injuries account for most injuries in contact sports because of the dynamic and high collision nature of these sports.  Collisions with the ground, objects, and other players are common, and unexpected dynamic forces on limbs and joints can cause injury. Traumatic injuries can include:

-Contusion or bruise - damage to small blood vessels which causes bleeding within the tissues.
-Strain - trauma to a muscle due to overstreching and tearing of muscle fibers
-Sprain - an injury in a joint, caused by the ligament being stretched beyond its own capacity
-Wound - abrasion or puncture of the skin
-Bone fracture
-Head injury
-Spinal cord injury
