Everyday we hear strong messages about the value of exercise in living a healthy lifestyle. Many of us live relatively sedentary lifestyles compared to past generations. Our jobs, our transportation, our leisure activities can contribute to this inactivity and many of us work to remedy this with exercise programs and participatory sports.
While adding exercise and sports activity to our day is a great thing, it does allow us to be vulnerable to sports injuries. You have heard the term “weekend warrior” – it is a real phenomenon. Of course, the best approach is prevention: getting into such physical shape that your body is up to this activity.
There are clear ways to train so that you can stay safe in specific sports. However, the reality is that sports injuries happen to professional athletes and to weekend warriors. These injuries can be painful and change your everyday life in dramatic ways.
