Tools to Prevent Athletic Injury and Illness

Injury and illness prevention can turn even your most valuable players into spectators. Physical demands and close contact between athletes put them at increased risk for injuries and infection, including:

  • Cardiovascular conditions such as cardiac enlargement, arrhythmia, syncope, and cardiac arrest
  • Cervical spine injuries
  • Concussion and other head injuries
  • Heat-related illnesses such as dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke
  • Musculoskeletal injury
  • Skin infection such as staphylococcus aureus (staph and MRSA), herpes, and tinea (ringworm, jock itch, and athlete's foot)

Some injuries and illnesses may seem unavoidable, but many are preventable. Here are some tools from Henry Schein that can help keep your players healthy.
