Why so many recreational athletes get injured

There are many ways to injure yourself playing the sport you love. And injuries as well as being painful can take an emotional toll on you, especially if you are passionate about your sport.

However, there are two broad categories that injuries fall into; chronic or acute.

Acute injuries are sudden injuries that often come after a collision or fall. They often lead to broken bones and torn ligaments.
