Acute sport injuries such as muscle strain, ankle sprain and muscle contusion are common injuries among sports’ players. Inappropriate training results in damage of muscles and tendons. Diagnosis can be done by physical examination, x-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and other clinical procedures. These injuries can be relieved by stretching, medication, physical therapy, and surgery. However, knowing what initial action to take during and after an accident contributes to the patients’ rapid recovery from injuries and reduces further complications.
