Regardless of your level of activity, practising a sport carries the risk of injury. Sports injuries are the second leading cause of visits to the doctor, behind influenza. Even the most seasoned athlete can suffer from injuries caused by overuse, impact or poor conditioning. Weekend warriors are especially prone to sports related injuries because they tend to squeeze in rigorous levels of activity on their days off after a long period of being sedentary. Wherever you may be on the scale, it's important to seek medical attention if you have a sports related injury.
