 Shin Splints: Also referred as MTSS or Medial Tebial Stress Syndrome, this type of sports injury causes severe pain in your shin bones. The acute pain associated with this condition is owing to the pressure applied over the shin bones and the surrounding connective tissues. Such painful condition can be prevented by putting on shoes with the right fit, performing warm-up routine before workouts, and enhancing the strength of leg and core muscles.
Knee Injury: Knee, being one of the complex joints is prone to all kinds of sports injuries. From dull pains radiating from the knee to reach your hip, or acute pain due to repetitive motion, these injuries can make the movement of your knees extremely painful, thereby limiting your mobility. Sometimes, you might also incur severe sports injury like the ACL tear.
