Are you in “love” with tennis? As a game that’s been around since the 1870s, tennis is played all over the world. High school and college gives youth plenty of opportunities for young tennis players to get involved in the game, but there are also intramural leagues and recreational groups available for noncompetitive tennis players. The best way to ensure that it remains fun is to avoid getting injured.
Some of the most common injuries in tennis include:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Wrist strains
- Meniscus tears
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Achilles tendinitis
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Hamstring strains and injuries
- IT band pain
The sudden directional changes, burst of intensity, and power required of tennis players is what could get them injured. Maintaining proper form and technique is critical, but even the most experienced tennis players sometimes get injured.
The good news is that a tennis injury doesn’t mean you have to be done with the game forever. The key is to find yourself a good sports physical therapist like Next Level Physio.
