What’s the Difference Between an Acute and a Chronic Injury?

There are two kinds of sports injuries: acute and chronic. Acute injuries occur suddenly when playing or exercising. Sprained ankles, strained backs, and fractured hands are acute injuries. Signs of an acute injury include:

  • Sudden, severe pain

  • Swelling

  • Not being able to place weight on a leg, knee, ankle, or foot

  • An arm, elbow, wrist, hand, or finger that is very tender

  • Not being able to move a joint as normal

  • Extreme leg or arm weakness

  • A bone or joint that is visibly out of place.

Chronic injuries happen after you play a sport or exercise for a long time. Signs of a chronic injury include:

  • Pain when you play

  • Pain when you exercise

  • A dull ache when you rest

  • Swelling.

Hello, I'm Doctor Donald Berry DC SFMA and I am a not only a Chiropractor I am a Movement Restoration and Corrective Exercise Specialist. Chronic Injuries are usually a result of Faulty Movement Patterns. Until the Faulty Movement Pattern is identified, the likleyhood of being reinjured is there. At Berry Chiropractic Center I use Funtional Movement Screening to identify the faulty movement pattern so we can change the way you move to prevent repeated injruy.

Whether you are recovering from an injury or are training for a Triathalon, a Movement Restoration and Corrective Exercise Specialist is what you need!
