Methods To Preventing Injury 

While injuries can happen beyond your control. There are several ways you can go about preventing injuries before they do happen. The following includes but are not limited to: 

  • Warming up: It is crucial that every workout should begin with a warm-up. Getting the muscles warmed up before the big game has many benefits which include: improve blood flow, flexibility, and mobility.
  • Wearing the right equipment:  During off-seasons, a lot of changes can happen to the body so always make sure to check and update your equipment every time before the season begins. Wearing the right equipment not only will fit right but will prevent you from injuries that can occur if you do not wear the proper equipment.

 

  • Avoid Playing Year-Round: Give your body the time it needs to rest and recover! To ensure that injury won’t occur, it’s important to allow off-season to be utilized for rest or other sports so the same muscle groups aren’t being used and overworked.
