A sports injury is, quite simply, any injury suffered while playing sport, or training for sport. In many cases, sports injuries are due to the overuse of a body part. Runners and joggers, for example, might suffer damage to feet, ankles, shins, calves, knees and hamstrings. Tennis players and golfers may present with injuries to wrists, elbows or shoulders.
The most common sports injuries are sprains, strains, knee injuries, swollen muscles, achilles tendon injuries, hamstring tears, shin pains, fractures and dislocations.
