Injury Prevention or Rehab - Sometimes preventing common sports injuries is beyond our control, but many times sports injuries are preventable. Some injuries are brought on by not being conditioned for the activity we are doing.The most common sports injuries are strains and sprains. Overuse injuries are common and preventable, as sprains are injuries to ligaments, the tough bands connecting bones in a joint. Suddenly stretchingthem past their limits deforms or tears them. Strains are injuries to muscle fibers or tendons, which anchor muscles to bones. Strains are called “pulled muscles” for a reason: Over-stretchingor overusing a muscle causes tears in the muscle fibers or tendons. Therefore, the proper therapy must be sought to condition, prevent or rehabilitate muscles to improve or return to their former state. Seek medical advice to learn which sports medicine therapy tools are right for your needs.
