Sports Injury—Are You at Risk?
There is no such thing as a completely "risk-free" sport. However, certain activities, including full contact or high impact sports, water polo, racquetball, basketball, and running, tend to put athletes at greater risk of injury.
Some of the leading risk factors for sports injury we want all our athletes to be aware of include:
- Overtraining or inadequate recovery
- Poor nutrition and diet
- Improper technique
- Improper equipment
- Unhealed prior injuries (e.g., restricted mobility, muscle imbalances, old scar tissue, etc.)
