Playing sports is naturally going to cause injuries from time to time. Any time that you are doing physical activity outside of your normal routine you put yourself at risk of being injured, but generally with playing sports the benefits outweigh the negatives.
The best way to avoid being injured when playing sports is to only play sports that you know well and are able to predict hazards before they raise a problem. But here are some ways to prevent injuries when you are just taking up a sport.
- Learn the rules. It is far too easy to get injured when playing sports if you are not playing correctly. if you are moving when you shouldn’t be, or doing something wrong, then you can easily be injured by another teammate or yourself. The rules are there to keep you safe as well as structure the game, so learn and stick to them.
- Wear the correct uniform. Wearing the right clothing will stop you from being injured, as it is there to make playing the sport easier and protect you against injury. Always wear all of the protective equipment available to you, including helmets, shin pads, mouth guards and gloves.
- Make sure everything is up to scratch. Whatever equipment you are playing the sport with should be good quality and fit for use. Make sure you check everything over before you start playing and if the equipment is damaged or bad quality then you shouldn’t play until you can get together more effective equipment.
- Warm up. Stretches and warm up exercises are there to get your body into the best possible state for playing sports and will ensure that you don’t overstretch or overwork any part of your body.
