Sports Related Pain

What is sports related pain?

Sports-related pain can occur due to acute injuries, overuse injuries, or chronic conditions such as arthritis. Acute injuries are typically caused by sudden trauma or impact, while overuse injuries occur gradually over time due to repetitive stress on a particular area of the body. Pain caused by overuse can be made worse through bad technique. 

Ongoing sports related pain can be very frustrating for those suffering from it, as they are often active people who can no longer participate in physical activity due to persistent pain.  

What are the most common types of sports related injuries?

What are traditional treatments of sports related pain?

Minor injuries may be alleviated with over-the-counter medications and rest.

Chronic, persistent pain that has been caused by a sports related injury can be treated with a number of methods including; physiotherapy, acupuncture, hot and cold therapy and prescription pain medication.
