Sports injuries are often preventable. When you watch this video, you’ll get some helpful tips on reducing your risk of having an injury put you on the sidelines. For example, sports injury prevention includes mixing up your routine. Instead of playing just one sport, play a few different ones throughout the year. This can reduce repetitive strain injuries that may occur from performing the same movements over and over again.
It’s also important to rest on at least one day of the week to let your body recover. If you do experience any pain, inform your trainer or coach promptly and schedule a visit with an orthopedic specialist.
