While running toward the ball or sprinting to the finish line, the last thing you want is an injury stopping you from success. As most of us become more active in the summer and fall, we run the risk of common over-use injuries.

“Some players get injured easily and it does damage to the cross country team. They usually heal quickly and come back strong though,” said Rachel Haupt, 10.

There are a few techniques that can help students eliminate pain and prevent the pain from holding them back. This would create more room for improvement and higher chances of doing well.

“When someone on a sports team gets injured they usually see the physical trainer. That almost always helps speed up the recovery process,” said Jamie Pescovitz, 11.

Some helpful tips to recover quickly are:

  • Stress management
  •  Relaxation
  •  Visualization

These will help your body to learn to heal faster and turn back to normal.

“I think it’s very important a person leaves enough time so their injuries can heal properly. If you rush back into your sport or activity things may never fully recover and completely turn to normal again,” said Maya Sheth, 10.
