#1: Breaking a Bone
Bones break when they get exposed to a sudden force. Any sporting activity – even running – can lead to a broken bone. Most people realize right away when they break a bone. Symptoms often include pain, tenderness, swelling, and deformation of the area under your skin.
Orthopedic and sport rehabilitation treatments help with this injury.
#2: Dislocating a Joint
Your bones fit against each other at your joints. Sometimes, a hard impact can knock the end of a bone out of place, causing a dislocation. Dislocated shoulders are one of the best-known examples of this kind of injury, resulting in swelling and extreme pain.
#3: Spraining a Ligament
Have you experienced pain and swelling around a joint after twisting a limb or falling awkwardly while playing sports? If so, you may have had a sprain. Sprains occur when an athlete tears or pulls a ligament around a joint, such as an ankle or knee.
#4: Straining a Muscle
Some patients confuse a strain and a sprain. Sprains involve damage to a ligament; strains, on the other hand, result from damage to a muscle. Many people experience a strain if they overextend a muscle, leading to a tear or stretch.
