Sports injuries are acute (sudden) or chronic (gradual) injuries that result from any physical activity or exercise. They’re caused by accident or trauma, repetitive movements or overuse, faulty equipment, improper warm-up, or improper training.

- Knee pain: ACL injury, meniscus tear, or patellar (knee cap) injuries
- Shoulder pain: rotator cuff injury or dislocation
- Elbow pain: bursitis, golfer’s elbow, or UCL sprain
- Hip pain: hip flexor, muscle contusion, or piriformis syndrome
- Back pain: weight lifters back
