How do you get a sports injury?
Recent research has shown that around 30%, that’s a staggering 22 million people, of the UK, suffer a sports injury every year. So the chances are high that most sports people will suffer multiple injuries over their sporting careers.
On average a person participating in sports will:
- Pick up 1-2 injuries per year
- Take up to 5 days off work every year
Even worse, of all the people injured, 25% will not be able to carry on playing sport as a direct result of the sporting injury.
If you love your sport, want to keep playing and can’t afford the risk of time off work, then you need to be proactive and make sure you know how to be as well prepared as you can be and know where to get the best treatment, so that if you are injured, you get back to full fitness as quickly as possible.
