Summer is a time where many people love to get outside and be active. While this is great for both physical and mental health, increases in physical activity also mean an increased chance of sustaining an injury. At United Rehab Hands On Physical Therapy, we want all our patients to enjoy a pain-free summer. That is we’d like to call out some of the most common summertime injuries, and what can be done to treat them.
