Basketball is a dynamic and high-impact sport, and therefore has a high probability of sports injuries. There are four important principles in preventing sports injuries in basketball
Warm-up: Proper heating is one of the most important obstacles to sports injuries. 10-5 minutes of warm-up To increase heart rate, increase body temperature is important. Stretching exercises should then be performed to improve the flexibility of tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Stretching should place more emphasis on the muscles of the thighs, legs, buttocks, shoulders and chest.
Muscle strength: Basketball is a strength sport and without strong muscles, the risk of injury increases. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen the muscles of the body, especially the muscles involved in basketball, by doing the desired exercises.
Preparation: The athlete’s body should be prepared for aerobic exercise when there is no competition, and should be prepared for anaerobic activity before the competition.
Appropriate equipment: Knee and elbow braces to protect these two joints from severe blows, as well as the use of shoes that cover and protect the ankle more tightly can help reduce sports injuries in basketball.
