Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, any injury sustained while participating in physical activity is referred to as a sports injury.

What Types of Sports Injuries Can PT Help?
The most common forms of sports injury include:
When a ligament linking one bone to another is stretched beyond its limits, a sprain occurs. When it happens one time, it is more likely to happen again.
Knee injuries –
Your knee is your body’s most complex joint, and it is also one of the most commonly damaged. Knee problems can range from minor aches and pains that stretch from your hip to your knee to more serious issues like an ACL rupture.
Strain or “pulled muscle” –
A strain is also known as a “pulled muscle,” and it occurs when a tendon that connects the muscle to the bone extends the muscle beyond its limits. The tendon is more likely to be strained again after it has been overstretched.
Shin splints –
Usually, this pain is caused by tension exerted on the shinbone and the underlying connective tissues. Shin splints are painful and frequently debilitating, but by wearing proper footwear, warming up before exercise, and strengthening the muscles of the heart and leg, you can prevent them.
