Injury Prevention at Boston Children's HospitalSports are a fun and healthy way to stay active, but staying safe while playing is very important. Whether you’re a serious competitive athlete or are just playing sports for fun, learning how to play without pain can save you from long-lasting injuries and long recoveries.
