Common Summer Orthopedic Injuries

Common Summer Orthopedic Injuries

by Shearly (SU)
It’s easy to understand why certain orthopedic injuries tend to occur more frequently in summer: warm summer days and balmy evenings bring out the summer sports warriors in droves. After a winter of being relatively inactive, a sudden burst of sports activity revs up your zest for life, but also, all too often, inflamed tendons in the elbow, shoulder, or knees. Untreated injuries can sideline you for many weeks, so seeking prompt medical help is smart.
