Pickleball has become an increasingly popular sport among all ages, especially elders who are finding it a fun way to be active.
According to BMC, “the increase in pickleball injuries is almost entirely derived from the 60–79-year age group. Senior males were more likely than females to suffer a pickleball-related strain or sprain whereas women were more likely to suffer a fracture compared to men and much more likely to suffer a wrist fracture.”
Pickleball isn’t all fun and games. Like any sport, it requires proper stretching.
