What is the most common summertime injury?

While there are disagreements on which is the most common injury, among the top are:

 

Heat-related injury or illness

  • Overheating
  • Sunburn or sun poisoning
  • Dehydration

Prevent it by covering up, slathering up (sunblock of SPF 50+), staying out of the sun for extended periods of time, and keeping a water bottle with you at all times (and remember to drink!)

Water-related injuries

  • Drowning
  • Diving or swimming in unsafe areas

Avoid swimming without a life-guard present. Parents, do not leave children unattended - even if they're seasoned swimmers. Obey signs that advise against diving in shallow pools, or swimming in treacherous waters. Exercise extreme caution when diving or swimming near boats.
