Sports Injuries

About Sports Injuries

Whether you are a professional athlete, high school athlete or just like to be active and play sports, injuries can occur. Many shoulder sports injuries occur because of a fall onto an outstretched arm or from repetitive overhead actions, such as with swimming or playing tennis. Another reason for shoulder sports injuries is if there is an imbalance in muscle strength within the shoulder. For example, an athlete that has strong chest (pec) muscles, but weak rotator cuff muscles can put themselves at risk of injury.
