1 "No pain, no gain." True? Not quite. There are many myths out there surrounding exercise. You can work hard, but you should be pain-free, not injured. Many injuries can be prevented.
2 The most common injuries connected to sports are related to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. The injuries may come on quickly (acute) or be chronic (gradual but long-term). It is important to seek medical attention for these injuries if they occur. However, it would be even better to prevent them in the first place. How?
3 First of all, prepare your body appropriately for the sporting activities you plan to do. In other words, build up your cardiovascular, respiratory, and muscular endurance over time. Give sore muscles time to recover. Warm up and cool down. Stretch properly to avoid tight muscles. Avoid dehydration, or the point at which the body has lost too much water, by drinking enough water. Avoid overtraining by not training too much or too quickly. Be aware of overuse injuries that are caused by repeating the same activity over and over, especially while you are still growing.
