Preventing Injury

Karen Finnin -144

Is it possible?

Absolutely. Many injuries can be avoided, and most injuries can be less severe with adequate preventative actions in place. Would you rather get treatment for a painful injury you have sustained or avoid the injury altogether? This is not a difficult question to answer, yet injury management, and indeed medicine in general, often remains focused on cure rather than prevention.

How can injury be prevented?

Effective injury prevention will never truly occur until people take complete responsibility for their own bodies and actions. This is something we, as a society, are not currently doing so well.

In our current culture, external faults are often blamed for our misfortunes. We are losing the ability to think proactively about our own circumstances.

We all have a phenomenal capacity to make 'accidents' happen much less frequently if we commit to simple strategies and increase our awareness. The range of resources and products below are all designed to help you to avoid injury.
