This damage is referred to as a strain. If done repetitively with forceful exertions RSI occurs. Repetitive Muscle Strain Injuries affects the athlete physically. It causes prolonged and chronic muscle pain to the athletes. The pain differs from one person to another depending on the classification of strain. Grade one strain is when there is damage to individual muscle fibers (less than 5 percent of fibers), this is a mild strain which requires 2 to 3 weeks rest. Grade 2 strain is when there is more extensive damage, with more muscle fibers involved, but the muscle is not completely ruptured. The rest period required is usually between 3 and 6 weeks. Grade 3 strain is a complete rupture of a muscle. For a sports person, this usually require surgery to repair muscle. The rehabilitation time is about three months. All muscle strains should be rested and allowed to heal. If the patient continues to play, the condition will worsen.

Osgood-Schlatter disease is an inflammation of the area below your kneecap called the tibial tubercle. There is pain and tenderness in this area because of the inflammation. It is most often seen in children and adolescents during the time of growth spurts. The muscles and cord-like structures that attach muscle to bone (tendons) tighten as the bones are becoming longer. This puts more strain on areas of tendon attachment. The condition may also be associated with physical activity involving running and jumping.

The first way is by stretching the hip flexor muscles. Stretching can be a very effective way for avoiding this injury. The type of stretches one could do is lateral lunges, butterfly stretch, head to knee stretch, and the sumo squat stretch (Get from Video 1.1). These stretches mainly stretch the hip flexor muscles or the muscles around it. Another way to prevent hip flexor strains is by using a foam athletic roller (Get from video 1.2). What this foam roller does is it works out the kinks in a person’s muscles, and in a way this roller massages the targeted muscles in the injured area. If a person stretches and does the athletic roller, that player will have a better chance of preventing having this injury. With all this being said, even though hip flexors are not as severe as a broken leg or broken arm, they are still very common injuries in the game of baseball, and this is why people should be well informed about this injury, the prevention of this injury, and the treatment that follows this

Delayed-onset muscle soreness, also known as DOMS, is considered to be classified as a type one muscle strain. When an athlete is experiencing DOMS they will have minimal to extreme muscle tenderness and/or stiffness to palpation or during movement. Typically an athlete will experience DOMS when first returning to extreme exercise, i.e. preseason. With DOMS, intensity of the pain will increase within the first twenty four hours post-exercise, peaking between twenty four and seventy two hours and subsiding within five to seven days. More often than not, many athletic trainers will have their athletes come in experiencing DOMS and asking what they should be doing to help aid the soreness or stiffness. Typically clinicians will recommend massage therapy, or foam rolling to help alleviate pain, but recent studies have shown that that may not be the case. Below what tools, how athletic trainers should handle athletes experiencing DOMS and what methods are most effective to alleviate soreness will be described.
