We often hear about the traumatic injuries suffered by professional athletes, which sometimes end their careers. On the contrary, debates about their possible return to the game can last for weeks. However, professionals are not the only ones who get injured while practicing a sport.
Extreme sports enthusiasts, amateur athletes and those who live an active life are also at risk of injury. Most of the time, proper warm-up, fitness, and equipment allow athletes to practice their sport safely. Nevertheless, no one is immune to an accident or even an underlying problem that requires pain-relieving treatment.
How do sports injuries occur?
Sports and exercise are great for health, but they often involve risks. Most injuries are caused by overtraining, inadequate training techniques or unsafe equipment. Injuries such as ankle, knee, elbow, shoulder or column may also be caused by structural anomalies and muscle imbalance or weakness.
