Acute vs. Chronic Sports Injuries

Sports injuries can be split into two categories: acute and chronic. Acute injuries occur suddenly and are usually accompanied by severe pain, like a broken bone. You’ll most likely experience a loss of function and will seek immediate medical attention.

Chronic injuries develop gradually and worsen over time, often a result of repetitive movement or incorrect form. They can also be the result of a previous injury that hasn’t healed properly. While chronic, overuse injuries outnumber acute injuries in most sports, their impact is underestimated because they’re not instantly disabling with an obvious loss of function.

However, it’s important for athletes to seek treatment for chronic injuries and to not ignore any pain or symptoms; once the injury is established, it’s difficult to manage successfully. Chronic injuries can even increase your risk of an acute injury; for example, if you favor one foot over the other because of tendonitis, you increase your chances of other injuries.
