Any part of your body can get injured while playing sports and that’s why you should be very careful and protect yourself from injuries. The musculoskeletal system is mostly injured and should be treated at the correct time for the improvement.

Types of sport injuries

Different types of symptoms are seen in different sports injuries. Let us see some of the injuries which may happen while playing sports:

Sprains

The sprains are due to overstretching and tearing of the ligaments. The ligaments are nothing but small pieces of tissues that connect two bones with each other.

Strains

The tearing and overstretching of the muscles or tendons are referred to as strains. Here, tendons are thick and fibrous tissues that join the bone to the muscles.

Knee injuries

The change in the movement of the knee which results into pain is referred to as knee injuries and it is well examined by the sports injury doctor whether it is an injury in the muscles or the tissues of the knee.

Swelling

The painful and weak swollen muscle due to an injury is known as swelling.

Fractures

The bone which gets broken is the one with a fracture.

Dislocation

When a bone gets dislocated in your body part then it is known as dislocation and needs to be treated well with the help of sport injury specialists.

Rotator cuff injury

The rotator cuff is the one which keeps moving your muscle and a tear in any of its muscle can cause damage in the shoulder muscle.
