Sporting Injuries

A sporting injury is an injury that happens during sporting activity or exercise.

Sporting injuries are caused by direct impact, overuse or excessive force being applied to a body part. Injuries may have resulted from a sporting accident, improper training techniques or inadequate gear.

Sporting injuries are either classified as acute or chronic.

Acute sporting injuries are injures that occur suddenly, such as a strained back, sprained ankle or fracture.

Chronic sporting injuries are injuries caused by repeated or overuse.

Acute and chronic sporting injuries benefit from supervised physical rehabilitation.
