Happy March Madness! During this time of year, fans and athletes alike get their brackets ready and prep for the exciting games ahead. Basketball is an incredibly exciting sport to watch as well as play, however, the high-paced nature of this sport increases the risk of injuries. Some of the common injuries from basketball include:
- Ankle sprains
- Achilles tendonitis
- Knee tendonitis
- Muscle strains
- ACL tears
- Finger injuries
