Sports and muscular injuries are the major culprits ruining the weekend activities of many sporting and exercise enthusiasts. Joint injuries, strains, sprains and tendon injuries can leave even the hardiest of competitors on the bench or carrying the oranges/water bottles. We all know prevention is better than cure but some sports are far more physical than others and often competitors don’t see the injury coming.
- Common sporting and muscular injuries include:
- Hamstring, calf and quadriceps strains;
- Stress fractures;
- Tendon injuries to ankles, knees and hips;
- Fractures and dislocations;
- Joint sprains and strains to shoulders, knees, ankles and fingers; and
- Haematomas / corkies.
