Musculoskeletal injuries are common and can happen even if you exercise regularly. The incidence of these injuries can increase with competitive sports and intense exercise. Two-thirds of sports injuries involve the legs, with the knee being the most commonly injured joint.
Most sports injuries can be cared for with simple measures. Remember the acronym PRICE (Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation).
Please refer to the link on how to treat sports injuries published by Harvard Medical School as a guide to help address simple injuries.
If your pain persists despite simple measures, or if you cannot bear any weight on an injured extremity, please call our sports medicine clinic for an appointment and evaluation.
