Injuries can be classified in two basic categories;Traumatic injuries are sudden injuries, in which you know something is wrong, and you feel the immediate effects of the injury whether pain, swelling or an open wound. The traumatic injury can be extrinsic, due to an external cause like a twist or a fall. It can also be intrinsic, without obvious cause, like a sprinters sudden hamstring strain in a race, or the squash player’s Achilles tendon rupture.
Overuse Injuries are more subtle because they come on simply as a gradually increasing pain, directly associated with a particular, usually repetitive, activity. Tennis/Golfers elbow and shin splints are examples of overuse injuries.Never leave an injury untreated, because it could lead to further and possibly more serious injuries.
