Actively participating in sports or any type of physical activity is a great way to stay in shape and maintain good health. Unfortunately, it can also lead to injuries that make it difficult to enjoy those activities. For many, the injuries include:
- Swollen muscles
- Injuries to the Achilles tendon

- Strains and sprains
- Knee injuries
- Spinal misalignment and more
Typically, these occur due to forceful impact, such as during contact sports. Other times, they are due to falls, repetitive movement, overuse, over-training, or not warming up properly before being active.
