Acute injuries are those which have occurred recently as a result of a sudden impact or awkward movement. Examples include a torn ligament, a sprained ankle or dislocated shoulder.

Chronic injuries develop over time. Possibly as a result of an acute injury or may occur from the continual use of the same joints or muscle group and can occur due to bad technique or occasionally from inherited structural problems with  bones or muscles
