Sports injuries are commonly caused by overuse, direct impact or the application of force that is greater than the body part that can structurally withstand. There are two kinds of sports injuries, acute and chronic. Sudden injury like a sprained ankle caused by an awkward landing is known as an acute injury. Poor technique and structural abnormalities can also contribute to the development of chronic injuries.
