I am involved in many activities (soccer, basketball, swim team, horse-riding, etc) my main activity is soccer but I seem to always get injured. Is their a way to help prevent these things from happening? I have had many fractures and bone contusions, sprains, and "kincks" and I would just often be able to play the game without thinking about how so and so hurts. Is their a way to increase your physical ability? I dont know why I always seem to get hurt I wonder if it is because I am overweight or something. . Any ideas or tips? Thx. Well, I have your answer right here. Stretch more, drink more water, and warm up slower. If you play hard, getting banged up is part of the game. Injuries are not. If you're truly injured, you need to stop and take time to heal before you keep going. Maybe you should drink more milk and increase your Vitamin D if you're getting actual bone fractures from soccer and basketball.
Here is a talk on typical athletic injuries that will be given to Greendale Physical Therapy on April 17th 2013.
