« The most common sports injuries are strains and sprains. Sprains are injuries to ligaments, the tough bands connecting bones in a joint. Suddenly stretching ligaments past their limits deforms or tears them. Strains are injuries to muscle fibers or tendons, which anchor muscles to bones »

The seven most common sports injuries are:


Ankle sprain

Groin pull

Hamstring strain

Shin splints

Knee injury: ACL tear

Knee injury: Patellofemoral syndrome — injury resulting from the repetitive movement of your kneecap against your thigh bone

Tennis elbow (epicondylitis)



Acupuncture can accelerate the healing process and some massage and mobilization can also help at certain stage of the injury.
