Complications could include:
Compartment syndrome is a serious condition that occurs when there is a large amount of pressure inside a muscle compartment. Compartments are the groups of muscle tissue, blood vessels, and nerves in your arms and legs.
Tendons, the fibrous tissues that connect muscles to bones, are covered by a protective sheath called synovium, which keeps tendons lubricated. Injury to this area can disrupt this function, causing inflammation.
Tendons are thick cords that join your muscles to your bones. Tendinitis occurs when tendons become irritated or inflamed. This condition causes acute pain and tenderness, making it difficult to move the affected joint.
Sports injuries can happen anywhere in the body. The most common tend to be fairly minor bruises, sprains, and strains. However, more serious injuries such as serious neck injuries can occur in contact sports.
