Common Injuries

Most injuries can be categorized into two groups:
  • Acute injuries: caused by sudden trauma. Signs and symptoms develop rapidly.
  • Overuse injuries: build over time, as a result of repetitive friction, pulling, twisting, or compression. Signs and symptoms will develop slowly, inflammation, pain.

The best way to initially manage both Acute and Overuse injuries is by using the R.I.C.E. protocol.
