Sports injuries

 

Sports injuries are the injuries that occur during sport, athletic activities or physical exercises. These injuries usually fall under four categories which include soft tissue injury, hard tissue injury, overuse injury, head and neck injury.  Some of the common risk factors for getting such injury is not being physically active, not warming up body properly before a workout and playing contact sports. Muscles usually respond to external stress by becoming sore. Muscle soreness feels like burning pain in the affected area and can be mild, moderate and severe leading to permanent damage sometimes.
