Acute Injury Q&A

What is an acute injury?

Acute injuries are those sustained unexpectedly from which your body eventually heals. Examples include strains, sprains, and fractures. You might develop an acute injury at work or school, playing sports, or simply doing everyday activities. Prompt treatment for acute injuries is vital to healing as quickly as possible.

What are examples of acute injuries?

Examples of acute injuries include:


Fractures are broken bones that may need medical attention to heal properly and effectively. You might break a bone at work, playing sports, or through a fall. 


Sprains occur when ligaments surrounding a joint get torn or stretched. Sprains are common sports injuries.
