Most sports injuries are the result of inadequate training in certain sports, structural defects in the body, and weaknesses in the body. Many people who start exercising after being sedentary sustain a sports injury. However, with the proper precautions, sports injuries can often be prevented.
The following are some basic steps to prevent a sports injury:
Warm up properly before any physical activity.
Alternate exercising different muscle groups and exercise every other day.
Cool down properly after exercise or sports.
Stretching exercises can improve the ability of muscles to contract and perform, reducing the risk for injury.
Shoe support may correct certain foot problems that can lead to injury.
If you do sustain a sports injury, make sure you participate in adequate rehabilitation before resuming strenuous activity.
