Prevention & Recovery

At North East Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, we’re dedicated to preventing sports injuries for adults and children in Tupelo and beyond.

No matter what sport you play, you can be injured. While contact sports pose the greatest risk of traumatic injury, most injuries in athletes caused by overuse.

The most frequent sports injuries are sprains (injuries to ligaments), strains (injuries to muscles), and stress fractures (injury to bones). In children, the areas where bones grow are at greater risk of injury. By following the prevention tips below, you can keep yourself and your kids healthy and active all year long.
