What is an injury?

In our body there are muscles, tendons, hairstyles, ligaments etc. The moment that there is talk of an injury or complaint, this is because the body has been damaged and hurt.

An injury is often a form of physical injury that is characterized by damage / and or irritation of the tissue. In many cases, the body is able to repair an injury. However, the question is where does the injury come from? If you know where the injury comes from, you can work on a solution.

The entire human body is discussed. From the head to the toes. Or do you still suffer from the shoulder? Read below a brief description of the possible disorders.

Lower body injury?


Are you experiencing complaints in the calf? It happens that we are busy or walking and that there is pain in the lower leg. The pain can feel annoying or sometimes severe. Because of this it is possible that you are hindered in daily activities or during exercise? The pain can be caused by a whip or strained calf muscle.

  • Stretched calf muscle , when the calf muscle is stretched, the muscle is stretched so far that it is just torn. This can happen with a powerful or unexpected movement during exercise, for example. If there is so much force on the muscle during movement then it may also be that a muscle rupture occurs, this is also called a whiplash.
  • Whip , a whip is no different than a tear in the calf. Every year many people are hit by a whip. In many cases, a whiplash occurs during exercise, often while dropping off. The tension is so high that the muscle tears.

Achilles heel

The pain in the calf can also lead to pain in the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is the most powerful and largest tendon in our body. An injury to the Achilles tendon can occur in various ways, whether acute or chronic.

  • Tendonopathy of the Achilles tendon , translated literally, tendinopathy is an inflammation. In this case an inflammation of the Achilles tendon. The quality of the tendon is reduced, often due to a much repeated movement that has caused the tendon to light slightly.
  • Shortening, with a shortening of the Achilles tendon, the Achilles tendon is shorter than usual. This often results in growth. The tendon grows less quickly than the other body.
  • Torn Achilles tendon, often occurs after a powerful sale during exercise. The tendon tears and the calf feels very painful.


Unfortunately, an injury can also be formed in the foot. One of the most famous injuries to the foot is the heel spur and the foot drop . Every day there are many people who walk on with a heel spur. However, this can only make the symptoms worse over time. Especially a lot of trouble with the foot while getting up from bed in the morning? It is important to tackle the heel spur complaints as quickly as possible! This can be done with the help of a night splint .

People also sometimes suffer from a drop foot. With a drop foot you have trouble keeping the foot up. This hinders the gait pattern. Normal walking can be impeded by this.  


Upper thigh

The upper leg can also be affected. Often through a muscle rupture or muscle strain. This can happen during exercise or during an unexpected movement. In the upper leg you have muscles in both the front and the back. This makes it possible to swing the leg backwards (hamstrings) or to swing it forward (quadriceps).


As soon as you get out of bed until you go back to bed in the evening, the ankle joint is actually loaded throughout the day. Many different forces are emerging. Sometimes the forces can be just too big. The ankle can then break . The surrounding muscles can also exert considerable forces. Just think about running. While running, the muscles around the ankle are fully stressed. If the forces become too large, the muscles can stretch or tear. This is then called a torn or torn ankle bands . Use the ankle with all possible movements. After repairing the ankle straps, the joint can still feel unstable . Sturdy using a brace around the ankle can offer a good solution for this.

An ankle injury can also creep in slowly. Consider the problems below.

  • Osteoarthritis does not just happen. Osteoarthritis arises in most cases from a trauma from the past. Consider, for example, a hard landing during exercise in which the foot has to take the power and fall. A small change in position can cause more peak load to be generated on the cartilage. This allows osteoarthritis to creep in slowly over time. You may also feel a slight tingling in the foot? Then have a look at tarsal tunnel syndrome.
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome, can feel annoying. With a tarsal tunnel syndrome, the foot feels like a slight tingling. A slight tingling sensation in the foot can be caused by nerve tightness. The foot can also feel weak and dull. Don't wait too long with a tarsal tunnel syndrome! Have the foot inspected by an expert at all times.


The knee, like the ankle, is a joint that is used a lot every day. There are therefore many different ways in which a knee can get injured or feel painful. If the knee is overloaded, this can lead to, for example, a jumper's knee or a runner's knee .

  • Jumper Knee , a jumper knee distinguishes itself from a runner knee because the pain occurs with names on the front, just below the kneecap. In most cases it is the knee tendon that is overloaded. Overloading is caused by a much repeated movement.
  • Runnersknee , looks a lot like a jumersknee, but is in a completely different location. With a runner's knee, someone will point out the outside of the upper leg where the person experiences pain and pain. Often during long walks in the mountains or while running a marathon, a runner's knee often occurs. There are several reasons why a runner's knee can be caused.

In addition to these injuries, patella complaints can also be considered. A patella is the Latin name for a kneecap. The kneecap can sometimes feel painful.

  • Femoral patella, complaints can be serious and painful. With patella femoral complaints it is the kneecap, which is normally neatly in a channel, not neatly in the channel. As a result, the kneecap does not move along nicely and can cause pain and irritation.
  • The kneecap can also get completely out of the bowl, patella luxation. The patella is then located on the outside or inside of the knee. This is very serious and requires surgery in some cases. Fortunately this is rare. In most cases, a patella luxation occurs through a collision, for example, during a fall or during exercise.
  • Meniscus , the meniscus has both a damping and a proprioceptive function, sends information to the brain about the position of the leg. For some people the meniscus is "worn out" or affected during exercise. It feels as if the knee can no longer move properly or that something restricts the knee movement.
  • Front crotch strap, the front crotch strap is an important strap within the knee. The front crotch strap keeps the knee stable. If the front crotch strap tears, often after the knee is stretched. Then it is important to stabilize the knee with, for example, a knee brace


It is possible that you have trouble with the groin. This can have several causes. The main reason is that the organs are blocked by muscles and tissue. As health decreases or there is a congenital defect, cracks can appear in the abdominal wall or in the groin. The abdominal wall can become bad as health diminishes or it can have a congenital cause. When cracks occur in the wall, we speak of a groin fracture (at the groin) or a abdominal wall fracture (in the abdomen).

Upper body injury?  


The back is a large body part and the complaints or pain can occur at different levels. In some cases it happens that people cannot specifically point to 1 place where the complaints are. There is then talk of non -specific back complaints. The complaints may even be located in the thighs, but where the complaints specifically come from is not always known. That is why good research has to be done.

  • Channel stenosis , as we get older, it is possible that narrows occur in the spinal cord. There are many nerves in the spinal cord, as the restriction narrows, it can happen that the nerves become trapped. This can cause pain and irritation.
  • Hernia, back pain? Pain in the leg or sometimes the lower leg? Then it is possible that this is due to a hernia. The discus that is incorporated in our spinal cord becomes less elastic and firm. These can cause pain stimuli over time.



Just like the knee, the shoulder is a commonly used joint. The shoulder is used for almost every movement. While walking, it is the arm that moves forwards and backwards. However, an injury to the shoulder can also occur. For example during exercise, but also while sitting at the computer, a shoulder complaint can occur. While sitting and applying a lot of repetitive movement, you may for example get a bursa inflammation , frozen shoulder or shoulder impingement .  

  • Shoulder out of the bowl, the shoulder joint is located between the upper arm and the shoulder blade and the collarbone. These are assembled with a head and a bowl. However, it is possible that the head will pop out. There is then spoken of a shoulder that has come out of the bowl. In many cases this happens after an accident.
  • Shoulder instability , often after the shoulder has come out of the bowl, the shoulder is unstable. The chance that it will happen a second time is a lot more likely. The surrounding haircut has been damaged, after which the muscles around the ligament will have to be trained.


The elbow joint is the joint which ensures that you can bend and stretch the arm. After long repeated movements it can happen that pain is generated in the muscles. Two well-known elbow complaints are the tennis elbow and a golfer elbow . These two complaints are caused by overloading the muscles. The difference in size between the injuries is that the outside of the elbow hurts with a tennis elbow and the inside hurts with a golfer's elbow .


The wrist is the joint between the forearm and the hand. There can be multiple causes for a specific condition. For example, you may have a personal accident while exercising or just during a Sunday walk. The person tries to catch himself with the arms raised, so that you catch yourself with the wrists. There is a chance that a wrist will be sprained or broken .

  • Osteoarthritis wrist, Osteoarthritis often occurs in people older than 45 years. Do you suffer from a stiff, swollen and painful wrist? It is possible that a change in the joint has occurred. There is talk of osteoarthritis.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, do you experience tingling or loss of strength? It is possible that a disorder occurs in the wrist. It is often the nerve that gets trapped. The symptoms can show up during the day but also only during the night, for example.
  • Rheumatism, rheumatism is a common condition. It is a collective name for more than 100 different chronic conditions. Rheumatism is an autoimmune disease, with an autoimmune disease it is the antibodies that will defend itself against the good cells of the body. This often results in a numb, sore, swollen and warm wrist.
  • RSI, we almost all recognize it, long days behind the computer, many making the same repeated movements at work or insufficient variety in work. This creates a so-called mouse arm in the wrist
  • TFCC injury, is it painful to make a powerful fist? Heavy, stressful movements are painful. Look for more information at the TFCC injury.
