There’s no other sport quite like boxing — and that’s why you love it. It’s a thrilling dance of power, agility and strategy, plus the endurance to push yourself to the limit. But sometimes you hit that limit a little too hard. That’s when you’ve got to be tough enough to step out of the ring and call us.
Boxing injuries are diverse, because they can happen both while giving a punch and receiving one. On the “receiving” side, these injuries commonly involve the torso, head and face. On the “giving” side, these injuries usually involve the hands and shoulders. They may be overuse injuries, or they may occur traumatically if your strike lands badly. It’s important to make sure that these injuries heal properly to prevent future health and performance problems.
