Things To Help You Be Safe
You should know the difference between pain and soreness. If you are in pain, you should stop whatever your doing and do the P.R.I.C.E. P for Protect, R for Rest, I for Ice, C for compress, and E for evaluate. If you get hurt, follow these steps and you will be back to good health in no time.
Things to use to be safe
In all, sports, big or small, proper gear is essential. In some sports, they require certain equipment, like in football, you need pads and cleats. In basketball, you wear proper shoes. If you're uncomfortable, you should deal with it. Would you rather be uncomfortable for a short period of time and be safe or be confortable and perhaps break a bone, or even get a concussion? I would rather be safe than sorry.
