Sports injuries are injuries that occur when engaging in sports or exercise. Sports injuries can occur due to overtraining, lack of conditioning, and improper form or technique.
Ankle injuries are defined by the kind of tissue – bone, ligament, or tendon – that’s damaged. The ankle is where three bones meet – the tibia and fibula of your lower leg with the talus of your foot.
A sprain is an injury to the band of collagen tissue i.e. a ligament, which connects two or more bones to a joint. The primary function of a ligament is to provide passive stabilization of a joint.
Tendonitis is when a tendon swells after a tendon injury. It can cause joint pain, stiffness, and affect how a tendon moves. You can treat mild tendon injuries yourself and should feel better within 2 to 3 weeks.
