More Sleep, Fewer Injuries

More Sleep, Fewer Injuries

If you get more sleep, there is a lesser chance to pick up an injury.

According to a recently published study in the American Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics, getting a full eight hours’ sleep could be the key to preventing sports injuries.

In a study of 160 pupil athletes with an average age of 15, a direct connection between sleep hours and risk of injury was discovered, with those participants who regularly slept for less than eight hours a night being discovered to be 1.7 times more likely to pick up a sports injury than those that slept for eight or more hours.
