Common injuries fall into one of the two different categories: Traumatic or Overuse.
Traumatic Injuries are caused for those athletes who play sports such as hockey, football, or wrestling. These sports result in traumatic injuries including:
- Muscle Strains
- Joint Dislocations
- Tendon Inflammation
- Ligament Tears
- Fracture Injuries in the Fingers
Overuse injuries or chronic injuries are stress-induced injuries, caused by overuse. These are the injuries that are caused due to repetitive actions. Sports such as baseball, tennis, and golf may cause the risk of overuse injuries.
- Tendonitis (Tendon Inflammation, Irritation, or Tear)
- Tendon Dislocation
- Nerve Injuries
- Stress Fractures
A chronic injury does not result in long-term disability when compared with traumatic injuries. Any injury when left untreated will impact on athlete’s performance.
