Common Sports Injuries

- Achilles tendinitis: The Achilles muscles which adjoins your calf with your heel become swollen and uncomfortable in this condition.

- strain: Overworking or stretching of quadriceps muscles in the outer thigh can interfere with your ability to walk and stand properly.
- Hip bursitis: Biking, running, or standing for long periods can cause swelling of hip’s bursa, the fluid-filled membranes that pad the joints.
- Epicondylitis: Also known as “tennis elbow” this is a swollen outer elbow joint.

An immediate treatment must be ensured if you sustain a significant injury during exercise or sports. Severe pain, swelling, numbness, and an inability to put any weight on the injured area are the signs to make sure that you are injured. A surgery is not required for most sports injuries. Using pain relievers and keeping the injured area immobilized with a cast or sling are also part of the treatment.
