A Woman's Guide to Sports Injury Prevention and Treatment
While active men and women may be equally likely to get hurt, some sports injuries affect women more often or in different ways.
Whether you’re training daily with your team, hitting the gym on the weekend or logging miles on your treadmill in the basement after the kids go to bed, you’re an athlete. This guide will explain the biggest risks active women face and how you can run, play or work out smarter to prevent injury.
The guide addresses in detail the following injuries that may affect active women and includes prevention tips.
- Knee injuries
- Ankle sprains
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Stress fractures
- Plantar fasciitis
Keep in mind that most sports-related injuries don’t just happen out of nowhere. In many cases, your muscle, tendon or ligament experiences years of gradual wear and tear before it gives out. Knowing why and how these injuries occur gives you an opportunity to take the steps to stop an injury in the making.
