Unfortunately, however, participation in sport and physical activity lends itself to injuries, although it must be stressed that the benefits outweigh the associated maladies. There are many risk factors that predispose the sport enthusiast to injury, and these are classified as either extrinsic or intrinsic. Intrinsic risk factors.
