Runner’s Knee

Knee pain accounts for over half of all sporting injuries, ranging from torn ligaments to runner’s knee, which is also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome. The stress of running can cause irritation where the kneecap (patella) rests on the thighbone. The resulting pain can be sharp and sudden or dull and chronic, and it may disappear while you’re running, only to return again afterward.

Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow

You don’t have to be Andy Murray or Tiger Woods to have it. Even if you’ve never played a set of tennis or a round of golf, you can still suffer from these elbow injuries. Both are overuse injuries caused by any activity that requires repetitive motion of the arm and wrist. The difference between the two conditions lies in where the elbow is painful.

Shin Splints

Shin splints are one of the most common running injuries with pain felt mostly down the middle of your shin or just the inner side of your shin. It can often be the result of a new exercise routine or lots of vigorous activity. Poor running mechanics are often responsible for this injury which can aggravate the inflamed tissue of the lower leg.

Groin Strain

Adductor strains happen when the muscles situated in your inner thigh contract suddenly or are overstretched. Very commonly seen in sports that require a rapid change in direction such as tennis, squash, hockey and rugby.

Ankle Sprain

Ankle sprains are very common in football, rugby, tennis and badminton or any sport that involves jumping, running and turning quickly. These movements can lead to twisting of the ankle and tearing of a tendon or ligament.

Achilles Tendinitis

This tendon can be found at the back of the ankle and if overused, inflammation and pain can occur. This injury is very common among athletes, especially these who participate in sports that involve running or jumping.

Pulled Muscle

Pulled muscle, which is also described as muscle strain, muscle injury or torn muscle, reduces muscle performance. Common causes are a lack of flexibility, fatigue, weakness or not warming up properly. It is most common with hamstrings, and can result in significant pain and bruising at the back of the leg.

Shoulder Injury

These injuries can include dislocations, sprains & strains, and are especially common in racket sports such as tennis and squash but can be seen in any sport that involves overhead movements such as swimming, weightlifting and basketball. These problems are generally related to rotator cuff, which can become overused or loosen and have an impact on the stability of the shoulder.
