Work and Sports Injuries Q & A

What causes work and sports injuries?

Injuries can occur at any point in your life, be it while playing sports or being active at your job. Although unexpected, these injuries have the potential to disrupt your daily life significantly.

Various factors can cause sports and work-related injuries, but the two most common causes are:

Direct trauma

Direct trauma occurs when an area of the body experiences blunt force from either a person or an object. This can lead to injuries such as broken bones or concussions.


Overuse injuries occur when a particular body part is used repetitively, resulting in wear and tear. For example, a baseball pitcher may develop tendonitis due to excessive use of the shoulder.

What are common sports injuries?

Whether you enjoy football or basketball, sports can increase your risk of injury. Even in good shape, injuries can occur.

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries

Effective treatment is crucial for a quick return to your favorite sport, as any injury can force you to sit on the bench for longer than you'd like.

What are the types of work injuries?

Work-related injuries can occur due to accidents or constant wear and tear on the body. Some common types of work injuries include:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Overuse injuries
  • Slips and falls
  • Back and neck strains

Employers take measures to prevent injuries, but accidents can still occur. Proper posture is crucial for avoiding neck and back injuries, and receiving treatment is necessary to continue working.
