Why Do Sports Injuries Happen?

Sports, by nature, are risky. At the top level, athletes stretch themselves to the edge of human performance, so it makes sense that sometimes things get stretched a little too far. But even if you’re not an Olympian, sports injuries are a common part of the game. Missteps, bumped heads, falls, tackles, or even just insufficient recovery can cause muscle and joint problems, and it’s a chiropractor’s job to set things right.

Types Of Sports Injuries

In general, sports injuries fall into one of two categories: acute and chronic/overuse injuries.

Acute injuries

An acute injury has a very clear onset - a specific incident that causes immediate pain, discomfort, or impairment. Examples of acute injuries include:

  • Knee ligament sprains or tears
  • Ankle sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures
  • Severe bruising (such as a black eye)
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Concussion
  • …and more.

Overuse injuries

In contrast, overuse injuries happen over time, typically as a result of overtraining, poor nutrition, or a lack of recovery. These chronic sports injuries include things like:

  • Stress fractures
  • Stress reactions
  • Disc herniations
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shoulder impingement
  • General muscle/joint pain that comes on over time
