Book Description:
The term sports injury, in the broadest sense, refers to the kinds of injuries that most commonly occur during sports or exercise. Some sports injuries result from accidents; others are due to poor training practices, improper equipment, lack of conditioning, or insufficient warm-up and stretching. Although virtually any part of your body can be injured during sports or exercise, the term is usually reserved for injuries that involve the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones, and associated tissues like cartilage. In recent years, increasing numbers of people of all ages have been heeding their health professionalsí advice to get active for all of the health benefits exercise has to offer. But for some people, particularly those who overdo or who donít properly train or warm up, these benefits can come at a price. Fortunately, most sports injuries can be treated effectively, and most people who suffer injuries can return to a satisfying level of physical activity after an injury. Even better, many sports injuries can be prevented if people take the proper precautions. This book discusses some of the most common injuries and their treatment and answers frequently asked questions about sports injuries and injury prevention.
