Thousands of students throughout New Jersey participate in sports teams every year, and every year many of those athletes become injured. Though playing sports has its benefits, it also has its risks. It is important that sports injuries are treated properly so they don’t get worse over time if the athlete continues to play.
Some of the most common injuries from sports include concussions, sprained ankles, knee injuries such as a torn ACL, pulled hamstring, tennis elbow, and more. It is important that athletes and their coaches take measures preventative measures to keep anyone safe. Athletes should always be sure to have a good warm up and cool down in order to make sure they do not injure themselves during a game or a practice. If you are injured, you need to allow yourself to fully heal and go through the necessary rehabilitations before trying to play the sport again. If not, you may simply cause further damage that can require surgery or make it so you have to retire from the sport altogether.
