Muscle Tendon Injuries in Athletes

Musculoskeletal injuries are a condition that occurs as a result of damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, cartilage or bones. It can occur in people of all ages, but athletes are at the highest risk. Muscle tendon injuries are the most common muscle injuries in athletes. The fact that the entire movement structure of the body is formed by the connection of muscles and tendons to bones creates an area open to injuries for many reasons.

Muscle and tendon injuries in athletes can occur for many reasons. Overstrain of muscles, sudden trauma, weakening of muscles and tendons, constantly repetitive movements, sudden movements, exertion during sports without warming up, not using equipment suitable for sports, lack of suitable ground, lack of motivation before training or sports. Although sudden trauma injuries occur due to reasons such as falling, impact, collision, sudden turns during sports or training, the biggest reason for the weakening of muscles and tendons may be extreme fatigue, malnutrition or the inability of the athlete’s physical structure to perform.
