Sports Related Injuries

Sports injuries can damage the ligaments, tendons or muscles that help our bodies move. Ligaments join bones together and tendons join muscle to bones. They both stabilise the joints in our bodies. Acute sports injuries include sprains or strains, cuts, bruises and grazes. Chronic sports injuries result from the repeated use of a joint or ligament, and can be related to imperfect movement technique, or structural problems of the skeleton.
