Sports and muscular injuries are the major culprits ruining the weekend activities of many sporting and exercise enthusiasts. Joint injuries, strains, sprains and tendon injuries can leave even the hardiest of competitors on the bench or carrying the oranges or water bottles. We have all heard that prevention is better than cure, but often competitors don’t see the injury coming, especially if they feel they have followed the guidelines of their training regimes, nutritional advice etc.
Common sporting and muscular injuries include:
- Hamstring, calf and quadriceps strains;
