These injuries can be classified into two categories: acute and chronic. Acute injuries are sudden injuries that occur from incidents such as awkward landings resulting in sprained ankles.

What is a Sports Injury?
Sports injuries are injuries to the musculoskeletal system (muscles, bones and related tissues) during sports and physical activities. Sports medicine is the study of sports injuries to prevent them and reduce their severity.
Causes of sports injuries
- These may be injuries that occur due to collisions with other athletes, the ground, and objects.
- Excessive use and repetitive stress on limbs and joints
- Improper training, Insufficient exercise, and Insufficient warm-up and stretch before the competition
- Inappropriate sports equipment or sports gear during sports activities.
When should I get treatment for sport injury?
If you suspect your injury is severe, make an appointment with a doctor or go to the emergency room. The following symptoms can be signs of serious injury that requires professional treatment:
- Severe swelling and pain
- Deformities such as large lumps or bent limbs at strange angles
- Cracking or popping sounds when moving damaged areas
- Inability to carry or support weight with the injured area
- Instability in a joint
- Trouble breathing
You should also contact a doctor if you have an injury that looks small but does not improve with home care. After the first month, there should be no swelling or visible bruising around the damaged area. If you see swelling or discolouration after four weeks, make an appointment with a doctor. Severe pain after the first few weeks is also an excellent reason to visit.
What is first aid treatment for sport injury?
You can expect several things to happen in the first few hours after a muscle injury. In addition to muscle pain, swelling and bruising can occur. Early acute pain can give way to throbbing pain. The injured area is also sensitive to movement and gentle touch. You might not be able to use it usually for the first few hours.
If you don’t have any of these symptoms, use the RICE method (rest, ice, compression, and elevate) to treat your injury immediately after it occurs and for the next 48 hours. Proper care and care starts with being smart and knowing when to stay away from an injury. Your first decision after an injury can affect the way you always treat it.
R.I.C.E. is an abbreviation that is widely used by coaches and sports athletes to remember how to treat minor muscle injuries. It stands for rest, ice, compression and elevate.
When can I play sports again?
However, this is not the case. After an injury, when an athlete is medically cleared to play, they should only do 10% of the intensity of the workout they normally do on the first session and consult with coaching staff to plan a progressive regimen to work their way back up.
Can I just wait to get better?
Book a consult with us to determine the grade of your injury, and they can come up with a plan of relative rest or safe alternating exercise activities while you recover.
