Basketball is a high intensity sport and therefore our bodies regularly get a beating. In most cases, injuries aren’t too serious and after having a treatment or a medical advice, you can continue to play ball again after a couple of days or weeks.
If your style of play is very physical, chances are great to suffer from a serious injury in your career. These injuries can take you out of the game for weeks, and in serious cases even for months or a life-time. We’ve seen a lot of players, which had to end their careers due to severe injuries. From what I’ve noticed, players have to deal not only with the physical aspects of an injury, but with psychological issues as well. Psychology can be a big issue, when trying to come back from a severe injury!
