An important sports medicine service Dr. Hughes provides is expert guidance on injury prevention. He offers resources that help enhance your performance and protect your body from common sports-related injuries.
To prevent overuse injuries, fractures, and muscle pain, you should learn the correct postures and form for playing your sport. If you’re just starting out in the game, you also need to give your body time to adapt to the increase in activity levels.
Routine medical evaluations help ensure you’re in great physical condition to participate in your favorite sports. Dr. Hughes can also offer suggestions for muscle-strengthening exercises you can do daily to keep your body healthy and flexible. He can also suggest training exercises to improve your cardiovascular, muscle, and bone health.
You need to keep hydrated during strenuous activity, so drinking plenty of water throughout the game is essential. This is especially important during hot weather.
