A professional basketball player once said, "I don't think that training or playing will affect my condition and physical ability. I train every day and make demands of myself. I see it as a challenge and a breakthrough. That's always been my overriding belief. When game time comes, I am more into it, and more excited. I enjoy the game and accept the challenge." The ankles of almost every basketball player have had serious introversion or extroversion (roll-over) at one time or another. The players' or teams' lack of understanding of sports medicine and protection results in inadequate , rehabilitation for a full recovery after an injury, as they are more eager to resume training or be back out on the court. This small lapse in care can cause problems such as further strains of the knee ligament, and even a fracture of the bone. Some players are even proud to be playing while in pain, thinking that it's cool.That's why the LP Sports Medicine Team wants to remind everyone: the ultimate responsibility of professional teams is to protect players after an injury. and it's also part of the respect and understanding players should have toward their profession.

For too many athletes, a sports injury is a pain that never goes away. Patient and complete sports medicine concept and protection should be emphasized more by players in protecting themselves and by teams in the pursuit of competitiveness! Starting with pre-game warm up, the use of protective gear and athletic taping as well as coaching on proper athletic moves, management of athletic formulas and physical ability as well as emergency treatment of sports injuries, must all be part of a complete strategy to help all athletes prevent sports injuries!Even though it's not easy to prevent an injury on the court or in the field, appropriate protection will help extend a sports career. Treatment of sports injuries is about restoring the athlete's best performance level. A normal bone injury requires three to six months to heal and a year to recover the ability to perform at the professional level. Ligament and muscle strains often require six weeks to six months to see better results.Serious damage may even require surgery to help functionality return, and needs a longer recovery time. Support and athletic taping play another important role in promoting recovery from sports injuries as well as in preventing them from happening in the first place.
