Sports injuries often occur in athletes participating in organized, competitive, and training activities. Gym practices are also exposed to sports injuries that occur for various reasons including, among other things, improper workouts, lack of suitable shoes or safety equipment.

Sports injuries are divided into two main groups:

Acute injury
This is usually a traumatic injury with a clear cause of pain in it to appear quickly and their level is high. Symptoms can include severe pain, swelling, movement limitation, redness, and touch sensitivity.

Chronic injury or overuse
Injuries that occur over time. They are the result of recurring actions or long stays in constant facilitators. This overload leads to gradual damage, inflammation, and pain. A chronic injury can also be an acute injury that has not fully recovered after a period of more than three months or, alternatively, a recurring injury that has not been treated properly.

Sprained joints and stretches to the joint or the surrounding tissue are the main sports-related injuries (a sprain is related to a ligament problem and a stretch is related to a muscle and tendon problem). Besides pain, the typical inflammatory response may include swelling of the damaged area, redness, and a decrease in the movement range of the joint. In addition to conventional treatment (rest, ice, stress, and lift), many athletes report that acupuncture therapy helps them suppress and rapidly reduce inflammation, pain and swelling, thus effectively returning to sporting activity quickly.
