Sports injuries are those that occur while playing or training in a sporting activity.  They may be either as a result of a trauma or overuse of a body part or specific tissue.  Overuse injuries may arise with rapid changes in training load or volume, the introduction of new activities or changes in biomechanical aspects of the activity (a change in shoes or sporting equipment).  Part of managing sports injuries is identifying contributing factors and modifying those where possible.
