Causes of Athletic Injuries
Shoulder injury, stress fractures, knee injury, and bone fractures are among the wide range of injuries that an athlete may experience. Some of the most common reasons for sports trauma include:
- Overuse. Chronic wear and tear of joints, muscles, and tendons can cause pain and affect an athlete's ability to perform well.
- Imbalanced training sessions. Athletes risk severe pain and chronic injury when they overtrain certain parts of their bodies while ignoring others.
- Improper rehabilitation. Effective treatment includes healing of damaged structures and tissues, followed by reconditioning of the musculotendinous complex.
- Sports trauma. One-third of all student-athletes will experience an injury related to playing sports.
