Make sure you always get a sports physical before beginning a new activity. It is one of the easiest ways to reduce your risk of injury.
You can also reduce your risk of injury during physical activity by wearing proper protective equipment. This includes helmets, shin guards, goggles, etc. If you are recovering from an injury, it is important to wear protective braces or splints. Be sure to consult with your doctor to determine the best precautionary steps to take after you fully recover.
If you feel pain when participating in sports or exercising, DO NOT continue. Playing through the pain could only worsen the condition. Visit Ouch! Urgent Care and get the treatment you need so you can return to your activity pain-free.
