Tips for Staying Safe While Playing Sports

Last updated 4 years ago

Athletes from weekend warriors to professionals need to be careful during play and practice to avoid injuries like broken bones, soft tissue tears, and overuse injuries. There are several ways to protect yourself from sports injuries with good practices on the field and off.

By strengthening your muscles in the gym, you can keep your joints and bones protected from injuries and remain more flexible. When you are on the field, you should always wear appropriate safety gear that is well-fitted and in good condition. As you get tired, it is important to take breaks and rest any sore muscles or joints.

You can find care from orthopedic surgery to physical therapy to help you overcome sports injuries and stay at the top of your game. For a closer look at the Sports Medicine Center at Largo Medical Center, visit our website or call our Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line at (727) 470-6826.
