Did you know?
Sports are a great way to meet people and engage in team-
building physical tness.
Injuries can occur even when safety measures are followed.
Awareness of certain conditions common to sports injuries can
help people recognize injuries or even prevent them. Here are
the most common sports injuries, according to Unity Point
Health and a 2015 report published by Fox News.
• Hip exor strain
• Achilles tendinitis
• Groin strain
• Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) strain
• Shin splints
• Tennis or golf elbow
• Ankle sprains
• Shoulder injuries
• Knee injuries
Speak with a health care provider and a physical tness
trainer to learn more about the best ways to prevent these in-
juries from occurring. In many cases, stretching and warming
using proper form, proper footwear and gear, and building up
intensity can help prevent injuries.
