Nowadays, more and more people are heeding the advice of their health professionals—get active so you can enjoy all the health benefits it offers.
Unfortunately, for some people—especially those who don’t train properly or overdo their training routines—these benefits can sometimes come with a painful and troublesome price: sports injuries.
Thankfully, many musculoskeletal sports injuries can be effectively treated and many people can often continue enjoying a satisfying level of physical activity post injury. Even more reassuring, many sports injuries can be easily prevented given proper precautions are observed. In the broadest sense, the term “sports injury” refers to injuries that commonly occur while engaged in exercise or sports.
Some sports injuries can result from lack of proper conditioning, while others can be attributed to accidents, improper equipment, and insufficient stretching and warm up, among other things.
