• When you participate in sports and physical fitness activities, you can injure the soft tissues of your body. Even simple everyday activities can damage these ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
• Some of the soft-tissue injuries you are most likely to experience include:
• sprains
• strains
• contusions
• tendonitis
• bursitis
• stress injuries
• Any of these can be the result of a single episode, such as a fall, a sudden twist, or a blow to the body. You might also sustain one or more of these injuries because of repeated overuse, such as in ongoing athletic activities.
• Sprains
• The joints of your body are supported by ligaments. Ligaments are strong bands of connective tissue that connect one bone to another. A sprain is a simple stretch or tear of the ligaments.
• The areas of your body that are most vulnerable to sprains are your ankles, knees, and wrists.
• A sprained ankle can occur when your foot turns inward. This can put extreme tension on the ligaments of your outer ankle and cause a sprain.
• A sprained knee can be the result of a sudden twist.
• A wrist sprain most often occurs when you fall on an outstretched hand.
• Most mild sprains heal with "R.I.C.E." (rest, ice, compression, and elevation) and exercise. Moderate sprains may also require a period of bracing. The most severe sprains may require surgery to repair torn ligaments.
