Muscle cramps are one of the injuries that often strike individuals with high sports activities such as athletes. Medicine Net page says this condition occurs because the muscles are less relaxed, causing muscle spasms. Sustained muscle spasms then cause cramps. It is estimated, 95 percent of people in the world experience cramps in their life phase.
Some muscles in the body can be controlled and contracted in one mode. Muscles are designed to maintain body postures, such as supporting the neck, head, arms, and legs. The muscles contract alternately as the body moves and relax. Cramps occur due to involuntary muscle contractions.
In addition to cramps, several other injuries commonly occur when exercising, including inflammation of muscles and joints due to incorrect position, torn/broken muscles, or dislocation of muscles, bones, and joints. Meanwhile, types of injuries to the foot include torn ankle ligaments, Achilles tendon injury, peroneal tendon dislocation, and pain complaints associated with flatfoot conditions.
These conditions can occur due to incorrect positioning of body parts when exercising, contact with fellow players, improper playing techniques, excessive use of muscles, and dehydration.

OT, a specialist in orthopedic surgery at Pondok Indah Hospital (RSPI), said that in dealing with sports-related injuries, accuracy and speed are needed to minimize long-term risks.
