Sports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities. In many cases, these injuries are due to overuse or acute trauma of a part of the body when participating in a certain activity. Injuries are a common occurrence in professional sports and most teams have a staff of Athletic Trainers. However, intervention by a sports injury specialist becomes necessary when severe injuries happen (known as catastrophic injuries),which are usually a result of trauma to the head, spine, or spinal cord.
