Play Better

Make Your Return to the Hardwood


Whether you're a pro, college or pick-up basketball star, nothing stands in the way of your on-court performance more than an injury. Although there is little you can do to stop the other team's center from hacking you in the lane, there are steps you can take to reduce the chances you'll be knocked out of the game for good.

The best approach is proactive. Guard against the most common basketball injuries with injury prevention moves, aka, "prehab." And improve your conditioning. When you're deconditioned, your movement patterns tend to be less crisp. As you fatigue, your running stride and jumping (and landing) technique can get downright sloppy. Our experts have answered three Q&As below that will help you get back in shape for the hardwood, and stay in the game.
