Squash is a very quick sport which requires your muscles to react rapidly and stretch to their limits frequently to retrieve a ball. For this reason, acute injuries of muscles are common. A fall onto the court, contact with the wall, or a strike from your opponent's racket can frequently occur and these incidents account for many of the bruises and more serious traumatic injuries seen. As with any sport, however, excessive training and competition along with using poor equipment can also lead to a host of overuse injuries.
