Sports Medicine and Sports Performance FAQs
What is a bruise?
A bruise is an injury to the soft tissue. It is often caused by blunt force such as a kick, fall, or blow. It results in pain, swelling, and discoloration.
What is a sprain?
A sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament. Ligaments are flexible bands of fibrous tissue that connect bones to bones, and bones to cartilage. They also hold together the bones in your joints. Sprains often affect the ankles, knees, or wrists.
What is a dislocation?
A dislocation happens when extreme force is put on a joint, allowing the ends of two connected bones to separate. Stress on joint ligaments can lead to dislocation of the joint.
