Strains and sprains in athletes.
Although often considered "minor" injuries, strains and sprains are the leading cause of time lost from athletics due to injury. Trainers, coaches, and physicians other than orthopedic surgeons are usually called on to manage these injuries and thus need to be aware of proper methods of diagnosis and treatment. Because of the tendency of these injuries to recur, treatment must be followed by adequate rehabilitation. Muscle sprains, in particular, require strengthening exercises to prevent recurrences.
