What are Sports Injuries? <>The benefits of sports activities are often accompanied by risk of injuries. Traumatic and overuse injuries are commonly seen in young athletes. Sprains, strains or fractures may occur while playing due to excess stress on tendons, bones, joints and muscles. Pains and aches in any part of the body must not be taken lightly as it may worsen over time causing permanent damage. Strains are muscle injuries that cause pain and inflammation due to a pulled or torn muscle. A sprain is caused due to a torn ligament as a result of a trauma or if the joint is used beyond capacity.

Wear a compression brace if you are at risk of an injury or have a history of previous injuries.
