There is undoubtedly no question in getting injured while playing sports, especially outdoor sports. Either you get some injuries from the opponent (intentionally or unintentionally) or you may get injuries from overexertion. But have you ever thought or observed, which part of your body suffers most of the injuries? It’s the knees that are hit with most of the injuries. Thus, better to be more attentive while playing sports and save your knees including other body parts too in order to avoid any serious happenings. Even though, knee injuries can be easily treated with several orthopedic surgeries, better be careful as knee injury is a patellofemoral syndrome that can damage tissues between the knee cap and leg bone. As we say, prevention is better than cure, wearing proper shoes can help to reduce the risk of knee injury. Besides that, it is advised to run on softer surfaces, take enough rest if in case you injure your knee and other attentive precautions.

Removing unwanted clutters from stairs and walkways
* Installing best grip handrails inside and outside the home
* Installing hardware mounted safety gates keeping in mind the safety of babies and toddlers
* Keeping any light on at night for little visibility and avoiding any unwanted happening
* Taking important safety measures with windows. It includes installing window guards, installing rails at the proper distance and much more.

Thus, these were some of the most prevalent injuries that seem like nothing but once they happen, it creates a lot of pain and unwanted hassle. So stay careful instead of repenting for it later.
