What women need to know about sports injuries
The benefits of playing sports are well known, but the impact may be greater for females. According to the Women's Sports Foundation, high school girls are less likely to get pregnant and more likely to do better academically if they participate in sports. Girls and women also have more confidence, self-esteem, and lower levels of depression. The downside of all this physical activity is that it comes with risk. Women tend to be more susceptible to certain injuries as well as sports or exercise-related issues.
