Who hasn’t shot hoops once or twice in their live? Basketball is a great sport but as all sports, it does not come without risk of injury.
We typically see everything from ankle sprains, jammed fingers, knee injuries to fractures. As each injury is different so are the treatment plans for those injuries. Ankle sprains are first treated with rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Knee injuries often times require the attention of a physician to evaluate and direct in treatment.
You can reduce injuries by staying hydrated and staying physically fit. Often times there is a period of inactivity, you should gradually progress back to full contact sports.
