Sports injury prevention helps athletes avoid the long term pain and discomfort that could lead to their inability to participate in sports – permanently or temporarily. Various issues, some including inadequate training methods and conditioning, improper warm-up times, or overuse and fatigue can cause sports injury. Sports injury prevention works to enhance and condition an athlete’s performance.
Working with a physical therapist for sports injury prevention allows athletes to rebuild movement and strength that may have been lost from a previous injury so that the issue does not remain stagnant or recurring. Without sports injury prevention, athletes often overuse and misuse their muscles due to a lingering muscular or physical issue. Physical therapists work with patients to determine the injury prevention required based on their sports involvement level and injury history.
