Sprains and strains are the most common type of sports-related injuries. These injuries occur to ligaments, muscle fibers, or tendons, which anchor muscles to bones. When ligaments move in the wrong direction, they can pull or tear, causing a sprain. Falling, twisting, or getting hit can all cause a sprain. Athletes often suffer ankle, knee, wrist, and elbow sprains. Strains can happen suddenly or develop over time.
