Treat Injuries Seriously

Perhaps I am more conscious of this because I am getting old, but make sure you treat all your injuries seriously.

Don’t try to “play through them” or ignore them.

The key is knowing the difference between a niggle and a real injury and I have to admit that sometimes I get it wrong.

When you are sure you are injured and it’s not your body complaining, get it treated properly and immediately.

By delay action you are lengthening the recovery time and possibly introducing complications.

Always carry an ice pack or spray in your kit bag or at the very least car.

Don’t try to be a hero – knowing when to admit it is the time to stop is the sign of a professional.
