Causes and types of sports injuries

Sport and exercise are usually good for the body and with proper precautions and preparation, injuries can usually be avoided. Apart from the physical damage from some sports and not wearing  appropriate protective equipment, the most common causes of sports injuries include:

  • Improper warm-up or stretching before a sporting event or exercise
  • Poor training practices
  • Being in poor general health

Common sports injuries include:

  • Joint injuries (knee, shoulder, ankle)
  • Muscle injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Achilles tendon injuries

How can I prevent a sports injury?

  • Develop and follow a fitness plan that includes cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and flexibility.
  • Exercise all the different muscle groups during your programme.
  • Warm up before playing sport or exercising. Stretching exercises improve the ability of muscles to contract and perform, reducing the risk for injury.
  • Cool down properly after exercise or sports. It should take twice as long as your warm-ups!
  • Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration and heat exhaustion.
  • Rest when tired. Avoid exercise when you are tired or in pain.

If you do sustain a sports injury, make sure you assess the damage and undertake adequate sports injury rehabilitation treatment before resuming your sporting activity.
