Feeling inspired by the Olympics? Physiotherapists are warning people to “be prepared” before taking up a new sport.
A survey commissioned by the Sloane Hospital in Beckenham found there has been a 20 per cent rise in patients suffering from sports injuries over the summer.
The most injury prone sport was running, followed by football, rugby, going to the gym and playing tennis.
Physiotherapists recommend warming up, stretching, good nutrition and hydration and, most importantly, learning the correct technique.
