The tendons of the elbow are some of the most common to be injured in our bodies. They are usually classified as tennis elbow or golfer's elbow. Tennis and golfer's elbow are quite similar, with the main difference being that tennis elbow begins from the bony point on the outside of your elbow, whereas the golfer's elbow begins from the inside of your elbow. Tennis elbow is the more common injury of the two, but both injuries are the result of repetitive strain.

Tendons are strong structures that connect muscle to bone. They are usually resilient, but can become injured when they are repetitively overloaded and become tendinopathies. Tendinopathies often start without a traumatic incident and will be found to get worse over time.

Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries in all land-based sports and can account for up to 20% of all lower limb injuries. Typically these injuries occur when the foot rolls inwards causing a stretching effect on the outside of the ankle. This can stretch, tear or even fully rupture the ligaments on the outside of the ankle and initially will generally result in a significant amount of pain and swelling. These events can happen in both contact and non-contact situations.

With some time and relative rest, these acute injuries do improve, so what is there to be worried about?
