Half of the injuries that occur during organized sports activities are preventable.
Experts at KidsHealth.org estimate that half of these injuries could be prevented with better training and more knowledge about how to properly use equipment.

Before puberty, girls suffer more sports injuries than boys.
Although, during puberty, boys suffer more severe injuries than girls, such as broken bones and head injuries.
Weight training cannot help prevent sports injuries.
Weight training helps to strengthen the body and make it more resistant to future injury. It’s also often part of a rehabilitation program prescribed to injured athletes to help get them back in shape.
