Susceptibility To Sports Injury

Sports Medicine Dr. Michael Swartzon says that even professional athletes are susceptible to injuries. "The moment you have an injury, that's the number one risk factor for you to have the injury again," Swartzon explains. In addition, the specialist mentions the orthopedics job is "to prevent it from happening again". For patients who have had shoulder tendinitis, Dr. Swartzon recommends "concentrating on strengthening your shoulder before trying to do an activity."
