Sports Related Injuries

Sports medicine is the study of sports related injuries to athletes and people who are active in the community. They are common injuries including ligament injuries of the knees, ankles, as well as shoulders and hands from falls or traumas as well as overuse injuries from over training or repetitive use. Age has no factor in who gets injured, but common overuse injuries are more in the older population who are trying things and move and are not used to.
