Malaysians are getting physically active these days. Badminton, running, futsal, and cycling are some of Malaysians’ most common pastimes. However, staying active does come with risks of getting injured as well.

A study showed that 51% of exercisers from a younger age group suffer some sort of injury; with the risk of getting injured increasing as they age. 

Among the most common sports injuries that occur to average Malaysians include:

  • Hamstring Injuries
  • Ankle Sprain
  • Knee Injuries
  • Arch Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)
  • Fractures

Sports injuries weigh more than you think. A one-time visitation to the doctor or just resting at home may not be enough in treating sports injuries. It could require physiotherapy, surgery, proliferation therapy over a span of time, depending on each individual’s recovery progress.

Although it is impossible to avoid sports injuries, but one can take precautionary steps to minimise the damage. Getting an insurance plan is one of the smartest choice to lighten one’s finances when the unthinkable happens.
