Injuries can counter the beneficial aspect of sports due to residual effects of injury. This can cause an athlete to stop participating in the sport. A literature search was conducted on peerreviewed journals of many databases to search for common sports related injuries in the ankle and knee joints. The joints focused on have been written in separate chapters to not confuse the reader of the location of the injury. Each injury has been given its own section to provide as much information as possible. The anatomy of each body region is also explained and pictures have been included to give the reader a visual representation of where the injuries occur. Through this literature based research, the most common sports related injuries have been found with respect to the ankle and the knee.
