Sports Injuries That Lead To Acute or Chronic Pain

Achilles Tendonitis

The Achilles Tendon is located on the back of the leg and connects the heel to the calf. Achilles tendonitis starts as a dull pain and is more severe after climbing stairs, running, or sprinting.

ACL Injury

An ACL injury is the tearing of one of four ligaments that connect your shinbone to your thighbone. An ACL injury is particularly common in people who play sports that change direction such as soccer, football, or basketball.

Hamstring Strains

Both common and quite painful, hamstring strains are frequently seen in athletes who participate in basketball, running, skating, football, and more. The three muscles that run along the back of your thigh get overloaded and result in sudden and severe pain during exercise.

Hip Bursitis

Bursitis is a painful condition that involves the cushion sacs that are connected to the bones in the hips, as well as shoulders and elbows. Bursitis happens as overuse of certain activities, or repetitive motion.

Iliotibial (IT) Band Syndrome

A classic runner injury – IT Band injuries happen when the tough band of tissue that extends from the outside of your hip to the outside of your knee becomes so tight that it rubs against the outer portion of your femur.
