Preventing Athletic Injuries

While focusing on the personal stories of four young athletes (two males and two females), the programme fully explores the most common injuries in school sports and how they can be prevented. Commentary by Dr. Laura Miele of the Sports Injury Prevention Center in Hartford focuses on these key principles: the importance of stretching and warm-up exercises, developing a strong core, using the right safety gear the right way, proper nutrition and dealing with injuries once they occur. After watching this video and reading the accompanying teacher resource materials found on the disc, students will understand the importance of preventing injuries in any type of athletic pursuit and learn some basic practices they can follow to keep themselves injury free.
