Sports Medicine

Athletes and those who are physically active sometimes experience a sports injury. The term sports injury, in the broadest sense, refers to the kinds of injuries that most commonly occur during sports or exercise. Some sports injuries result from accidents; others are due to poor training practices, improper equipment, lack of conditioning or insufficient warm-up and stretching. 

Although virtually any part of your body can be injured during sports or exercise, the term is usually reserved for injuries that involve the muscles, bones, ligaments and tissues. Fortunately, most sports injuries can be treated effectively, and those who suffer them can return to a satisfying level of physical activity once they heal. Even better, many sports injuries can be prevented if people take proper precautions.
