Causes of Sports Injuries

Sports injuries occur during sports or exercise and are commonly caused by overuse, direct impact or extreme application of force. The cause of sports injuries extends from contact during games to overloading in training. Regardless of their cause, sports injuries can affect sporting participation in terms of training and playing, as well as discomfort outside of sport through impact on daily life.
