Sports Injuries Q&A

What are sports injuries?

Sports injuries include any type of injury incurred during any sport or physical activity. You can experience a sports injury suddenly, such as landing awkwardly from a jump or tearing an ankle ligament. Or you can develop an injury like tendonitis, which tends to worsen over time with repeated tendon irritation.  

A few of the most common sports injuries include: 

  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendon and muscle strains
  • Knee injuries, such as ACL tears
  • Achilles tendon injuries, such as Achilles tendonitis and Achilles tendinosis
  • Shoulder injuries, particularly rotator cuff tears
  • Dislocations
  • Bone fractures

Each sports injury is unique, but they commonly bring uncomfortable symptoms and difficulty in keeping up your regular routine. Fortunately, sports injury treatment at Boost can help. 

What are the symptoms of a sports injury?

Sports injuries can cause a wide variety of issues, but the most common are:

  • Discomfort or pain
  • Stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Difficulty standing or using the injured part of your body
  • Weakness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising

Ignoring these symptoms can lead to a serious downturn in your condition, so it’s always ideal if you come into the Boost office for treatment as soon as your sports injury symptoms begin.
