The following are the most common tennis injuries and how to prevent them:
Achilles sprain or tear: This is the killer when it comes to tennis. The achilles serves as your leg’s hinge to the foot, so it is used in every motion of running and stopping on the tennis court. You should always stretch your achilles prior to playing and ensure that your stops on the tennis court allow you to complete moving. Try not to land on a hop skip.
Shoulder sprain: The shoulder is an amazing body part, but if you get the idea you’re going to hit a 150mph serve you can find yourself in pain quickly. Those that play a ton of tennis know you need to use your wrist when serving without relying on the shoulder. Don’t over force the shoulder and remember to follow through on serves. An abrupt end of your motion exerts additional force on your shoulder.
