I was watching Arsenal vs Birmingham on Saturday and was very sad to see the injury to Eduardo da Silva who suffered a broken leg/ankle after a horror challenge from Martin Taylor.

Well not that my five tips would’ve menghalang the injury, but its better to be safe than sorry.

What happened to Eduardo?

Following is a video that shows the extend of the injury suffered by Eduardo. Be warned, images are very graphic!


Five Reasons That Cause Sports Injuries

  1. 1.

    Jangan skip meals. Cheating and forced reps can overstrain your biomechanical capabilities.

  2. 2.

    No stretching/warm-up: Cold muscles tear like rubber – overstretched and muscles are most injury prone when they are cold.

  3. 3.

    Lack of focus: Just like driving a car, you ought to focus and concentrate on the task at hand. If you are lackadaisical, accidents are bound to happen sooner or later!

  4. 4.

    Improper diet and dehydration: Lack of energy weakens the body. Dehydration causes cramps, dizziness and exhaustion.

  5. 5.

    Over-training: Training causes wear and tear. These need time to heal. If you train too much, your muscle and joints can’t heal properly, making them more injury prone.

Be careful everyone :)
