Serious About Sports?

It is important to note that all sports carry a risk of injury. The severity and frequency of injury varies depending on the sport, position played, amount of preparation building up to competition, level of competition, and the age of the “athlete”.
There are many predisposing factors for injuries in sport. Three major factors which affect the prevalence of injury in younger athletes are: lifestyle, seriousness/level of competition, and amount of preparation.
What to do following an injury:
Follow the PRICE recommendation (P – position, R – rest, I – ice, C – compression, E – elevation).
Seek medical advice (Doctor/Sports Physician, Physiotherapist, Biokineticst).
Treat appropriately
Do extensive rehabilitation to prevent future injury.
Do “pre-habilitation” to avoid any other injuries.
