Participating in sports is a great way to enjoy regular physical activity, but can lead to painful injuries. From broken bones to sprains and strains, sports-related injuries might be caused by the lack of proper gear, lack of training, or simply by accident.
The most common sports-related injuries are those affecting the legs and feet, including ankle sprains, Achilles tendonitis, knee injuries, and shin splints. These conditions can cause pain and inflammation, and may be serious enough to require medical attention. It is important to stop the athletic activity once the injury occurs to prevent further damage. In many cases, rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) are appropriate for reducing pain and swelling after injury. Physical therapy or other medical treatments may also be recommended depending on the severity of the injury.
