Learn about alignment and technique
Your joint is more likely to be injured when it’s at the extremes of its possible movement, which means that doing some actions when off-balance can cause injuries. This happens because your body isn’t aligned correctly, and this can put stresses on the wrong parts of your body.
Learning the correct body alignment is part of learning the technique of a sport or exercise. For example, correct body alignment is very important when learning the correct kicking technique in rugby or football, as a lot of pressure gets put on your supporting leg. You may want to get some expert advice from a sports coach, personal trainer or physiotherapist.
