Sports Injuries Exercising is good for you, but sometimes you can become injured when you play sports or exercise. Accidents, poor training practices, or improper technique can cause them. Some people get hurt because they are not fit enough for the activity they wish to do. Injuries fall into two categories sudden onset injury or overuse injury. As the name implies, sudden onset injuries occur quickly, for example twisting your ankle or feeling back pain when lifting a weight. They can be due to overstretching, falling or poor technique with things such as lifting weights. Overuse injuries commonly come on over a period of time, particularly if you are increasing the amount of exercise you are doing. For example someone training for a marathon and increasing the amount they are running each week. These injuries often involve repetitive movements and can be due to several factors. Again technique can be cause of overstress to particular areas of the body. Also areas of stiffness or weakness can cause overload leading to injury. Working out the cause of the overload is the key to eliminating the problem. Often treatments to the painful area settle the pain but the problem can return if the cause of the overload is not addressed.
