The most common sports injuries are plantar fascitis which is caused by a lot of running and/or sprinting or it can be caused by simply being on your feet, ankle sprains which is usually caused by when it is turned during a physical activity, other injuries can also include any pulls, low back pain, or elbow pain.
A few things you can expect from an athletic injury is immediate pain, swelling, bruising, and you can also be sensitive to movement or tender to touch. A way you can treat your injury is by resting, icing, and compressing. Resting is the most effective way to start the healing process, take a break from moving and let your injury heal. Icing will help relieve pain and will reduce the swelling by decreasing blood flow to the area, to prevent frostbite never place the ice directly on your bare skin. Instead, wrap it in a towel or cloth before applying it on the injury. Compressing can help reduce swelling and can help ease pain, keep in mind tight compression isn’t always the best, gentle compression can help keep fluid from collecting around the injury.
