If we know every cause of an injury we can prevent any injuries from happening I believe.

I guess a few causes are being sloppy in movements, overtraining, not warming up, inappropriate warm up, malnutrition?

IMO you cannot avoid all injuries.

Even if you stayed in bed all day you would probably get bedsores (injury).

The human body responds to stress microtrauma (injury) by becoming stronger.

There is a balance between trying to make the body stronger and the healing that takes place in between the stressor. Sometimes even when you try to do things correcly there will be an imbalance and a noticable injury. The best you can do is try to limit your odds of being noticably injured/hurt.

I am assuming you try to greatly limit the stupid things you do such as making sure you use correct form on exercise getting proper rest, nutrition etc. You can stack the odds in you favor, but no guarantee

I know in my case, it's usually because I don't heed the warning signs.

I know something bad is happening (e.g. either sharp pain, or chronic pain in one of the joints), but I'm addicted, so instead of taking care of the problem, I just keep working through it. I really hate the rest part of RICE so I typically ignore it. I'm an idiot, I know what it'll lead to, I know it'll take longer to heal, but I do it anyway and hope for the best.

As I've gotten older, I've basically been forced to be more careful as it takes A LOT longer to heal. I'm a bit smarter now than I was 10 years ago, but only a bit!
