Exercises to prevent sports injuries

Sports participation is a leading cause of injury in young people. Injuries can have both short- and long-term consequences. An injury can immediately sideline a player. This puts both the fun of participation and the health benefits of exercise on hold.

An injury that keeps a child out of the game over the long term can also increase the chances of gaining weight, losing fitness, and even possibly developing arthritis in later years.

It may not always be possible to avoid injury when playing sports, especially physical contact sports. Participants can help protect themselves by correctly preparing before and after a game or practice session. This is done by warming up muscles and then stretching.

How to properly stretch

  • Stretching keeps the body flexible whether you're skiing, running, or participating in a team sport like basketball or football. Injury rates may decrease as a result, especially for the ankle and knee. After exercise, stretching should also be a part of your injury prevention strategy.

  • Stretching is a type of physical activity, so the body has to warm up with some modest movement before stretching. Muscles can be warmed up by doing jumping jacks, running in place, or walking for a while.

These stretches can be performed on warmed-up muscles:

Lunge forward

On one knee, bend. the other leg at a right angle and extend it forward (knee right over ankle). To feel the stretch in your inner thigh, lean forward. pause for half a minute.

Side lunge

Step out far with your feet. Lean toward the knee of the bent leg. For 20 to 30 seconds, hold. Leaning toward the opposing leg and bend.

Stretching the quads while standing

Use a chair or a wall as support. Raise your back foot. Stretch the thigh by holding the foot at the ankle and pulling it toward the buttocks with the hand on the same side of the body. Keep your hips forward and your knees close. Release after holding for 20 to 30 seconds. Alternate legs.
