      I can provide general information about the commonality of sports injuries. Keep in mind that the frequency of these injuries can vary based on factors such as the sport itself, the level of competition, and individual player characteristics.

      1. Sprains and Strains:
        • These are quite common in many sports. They involve the stretching or tearing of ligaments (sprains) or muscles and tendons (strains). The frequency depends on the type of sport and the level of physical contact involved.
      2. Concussions:
        • Concussions are common in contact sports like football, rugby, and hockey. They can also occur in non-contact sports due to falls or collisions. Proper awareness and protocols have been implemented in many sports to address and prevent concussions.
      3. Fractures:
        • Fractures can happen in any sport where there is a risk of impact or a fall. Sports like football, basketball, and skateboarding have a higher risk compared to, for example, swimming or cycling.
      4. Tendonitis:
        • Tendonitis is common in sports that involve repetitive motion, such as running, tennis, or golf. Overuse of a particular tendon can lead to inflammation.
      5. ACL Injuries:
        • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries are often seen in sports that involve sudden stops, changes in direction, or jumping, such as soccer, basketball, and skiing. They are more prevalent in sports with cutting and pivoting movements.
      6. Rotator Cuff Injuries:
        • Common in sports that involve repetitive overhead motions, like baseball, tennis, and swimming. Rotator cuff injuries can range from mild inflammation to severe tears.
      7. Dislocations:
        • Dislocations can occur in sports with a risk of collisions or falls, such as football, rugby, or martial arts. Shoulder and joint dislocations are relatively common.
      8. Shin Splints:
        • Common in sports that involve running or jumping, like track and field or basketball. Shin splints are often caused by overuse and can result in pain along the shinbone.
      It's important to note that injury rates can change over time due to advancements in sports medicine, changes in training techniques, and improvements in equipment. Additionally, individual susceptibility to injuries varies, and preventive measures can significantly reduce the risk of many sports-related injuries.

      I played amateur football for more than 20 years and, thankfully, never experienced a serious injury. What is the worst sporting injury any of us have ever received?
