MONDAY, Dec. 10, 2018 -- Serious sports injuries aren't confined to athletes -- spectators also run that risk, a new study finds.
"You don't expect to be injured when you attend a sporting event as a spectator," said Dr. Amit Momaya, a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. "You certainly don't expect to die, yet there are any number of cases where spectators are injured, some fatally, at sporting events."
SATURDAY, Dec. 8, 2018 -- It's great to get exercise during the holidays, as long as you take steps to avoid injuries, a sports medicine expert says.
"I would encourage everyone to get out and be active, but we want to be sure that you are able to continue to get out and be active after the holidays," said Dr. Theodore Shybut, an assistant professor in the department of orthopedic surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
