FIVE WAYS TO AVOID A KNEE INJURY THIS SPORTS SEASON

Now that the fall sports season has kicked off, millions are practicing, playing and competing across the country. But, with contact sports comes contact injuries and many are feeling the impact of the games played all over their bodies. From football to basketball, soccer to wrestling, one of the most common areas of injury in athletes are the knees.

Because knees bear the majority of weight and are the primary place in which power is generated when sprinting, jumping and pushing, they are a constant source of nagging injuries and are subject to wear and tear.
