Sports Injuries Q & A

What are sports injuries?

Sports injuries include any body damage that occurs during physical activity. Physical activity is good for your body and your health. Professional athletes are constantly reaching new heights and shattering records. 


But pushing your body to its limit increases your risk of injury. Whether from a misstep, overuse, or misuse of athletic equipment, injuries happen. Sports injuries don’t just affect professional athletes — they also happen to gym-goers and weekend warriors.

What are common sports injuries?

Sports injuries may affect any part of your body but most often involve the musculoskeletal system — muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and joints. Common sports injuries include:


  • Sprains and strains
  • Joint dislocation
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
