Most Common Hurling Injuries

When you decide to play any sport, you’re willing to risk getting injured.

Unfortunately, Irish sports are often overlooked by the broader medical community, so today we’re going to look at some of the most common injuries in one of Ireland’s oldest and roughest sports: hurling.

The reason it is so high is that golf is a sport that involves extremely repetitive movements, which can lead to a whole host of issues, overuse injuries being one of the most common.

There are anywhere from 650 to over 800 muscles in our bodies, so it is inevitable that they will have the occasional problem.

So what exactly causes stiff muscles?

The majority of tennis injuries are a result of overuse, although physical trauma is also common. In this blog, we’re going to look at some of the most common tennis injuries, and what causes them.
