In this video, Dr. Anne Moore and Dr. Heather Bergeson point to the key to staying injury-free: keeping in condition year-round, so that early-season workouts and practices are not too much of a shock; conducting a dynamic warm-up before vigorous or competitive activity (and saving static stretching for flexibility until after practices); using proper protective equipment; and visiting a doctor in the case of any unusual or prolonged soreness after workouts.
