Sports Medicine Physicians in Boynton Beach, FL
You don't have to be a professional athlete to be susceptible to sports injuries. Recreational athletes and weekend-warriors, and any physically active person can be susceptible to sports-related injuries. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, and concussions. Sports injuries can result from accidents; while others are due to poor training practices, improper equipment, lack of conditioning or insufficient warm-up and stretching.
Fortunately, most sports injuries can be treated effectively, and those who suffer them can return to a satisfying level of physical activity once they heal. Even better, many sports injuries can be prevented if people take proper precautions.
