Sports injuries typically result in symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Joint instability
  • Limited mobility
  • Muscle weakness
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Inability to use the affected limb

Sometimes a sports injury is so severe there’s no doubt that you need medical care. One of the challenges of minor to moderate injuries is deciding when to schedule an appointment to have it checked out.

If you have any doubts, it’s always best to have your injury examined. Continuing to use damaged muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones only leads to progressive damage and instability.
