10 Tips to Avoid Fall Sports Injuries



Football, soccer, cheerleading and volleyball are popular fall youth sports activities. As kids settle into the new school year, they're also excited to hit the field again. To help reduce the risk of common injuries, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine(AOSSM) offer safety tips to keep kids in the game and out of emergency rooms.

"Overuse injuries are the most common types of sports-related injuries," said AAOS spokesperson
Michael S. George, MD, who specializes in sports medicine. "Often times the initial aches and pains felt during the progression of an injury are overlooked by young athletes. It's essential to teach them about the importance of informing a coach or parent about pain because an undiagnosed injury can become more severe in the long run."
  1. Have a pre-season physical examination and follow your doctor's recommendations.
  2. Warm-up and cool down properly with low-impact exercises like walking or cycling.
  3. Consistently incorporate strength training and stretching. A good stretch involves not going beyond the point of resistance and should be held for 10-12 seconds.

Top 6 Tips for Running in Fall Weather

By DietsInReview.com


Many runners will say that their favorite time of year to hit the pavement is fall, and I'm no different. There's just something about that cool (yet, not cold) crisp air that makes you just want to get out there and, well, run!


However, just like any time of year, there are a few quirks to running in the fall that you may not have thought of. Read on for six tips to make your next autumn run great whether you're a seasoned jogger or new to the running game!


1. Dress in layers. I like to think of dressing for an autumn run like packing for a trip to San Francisco - you can never have too many layers! This time of year the temperature can really vary from hour to hour and from in the shade to in the sun, so when in doubt, dress for colder weather with layers that you can shed as you warm up. One great tool for reference is Runner's World's What to Wear feature.


2. Pay attention to the time.

The daylight hours are quickly dwindling, so don't be surprised when your usual 7 p.m. summer run goes from bright sunshine to sunset. The same goes for the morning, as your usual sunrise run is now pitch black. While it's always safer to run during the day, if you do choose to run in the dark, be sure to dress appropriately with bright colors and reflective gear.
