From the Olympic athlete to the weekend runner, we are all susceptible to sporting injuries.

For many of us, it’s often a matter of quickly issuing ice where the pain is and resting for a while with a decent excuse as why we haven’t attended the gym.

In the US, about 30 million children and teenagers participate in some form of organised sport which results in 3.5 million injuries each year according to Hopkins Medicine. Almost one-third of all injuries incurred in childhood are sports related with the most common being sprains and strains.

However, sporting injuries can be far more severe and quite often go unnoticed as the amateur sports star isn’t able to see the warning signs.

Register here for the webinar on sports injuries. 

Sports and recreational activities contribute to about 21 per cent of all traumatic brain injuries among American children. And almost 50 per cent of head injuries sustained in sports or recreational activities, occur during bicycling, skateboarding or skating incidents.

In latest Gulf News Webinar will be discussing not only how to overcome them sporting injuries, but importantly how to prevent them.

Quite often we see our favourite sporting hero, back in the game after a few years away due to an injury making it all look so easy.

However, for every gold medal winning moment of glory that we see, there have usually been countless hours, sometimes years, of daily hard physical rehabilitation.

And often more importantly, plenty of mental resilience required, to install belief during the hours of solo rehabilitation that recovery is possible, and a relapse won’t occur.
