Sprains In Netball

Satisfactory Essays
Netball is a sport which is heavily reliant on muscular endurance, due to the fast paced, jumping, and quick motion aspects of the game. As a result of these factors, there is a high risk of certain injuries including: ankle sprains, rotator cuff injuries and finger sprains.
Ankle Sprains:
Ankle injuries are one of the most common injuries in netball. Sprains occur from the stretching or tearing of a ligament (strong bands of inelastic tissue that connect bone to bone). Sprains are classified as an acute soft tissue injury. Ankle sprains in netball can be caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic forces- making it both an indirect and direct injury; depending on the situation at which the injury takes place.
