Potential Injuries While Playing Pickleball
Any activity that has you stopping short, changing direction quickly and/or pivoting puts your knees at risk. Common injuries include sprains, and meniscal or ligament tears.
Do you need special shoes to play pickleball?
Indoor pickleball players need a shoe that can grip the slick flooring surface of indoor courts so ideally will have a tackier organic natural rubber sole vs a synthetic sole on outdoor court shoes that are designed for abrasive hardcourts.
Pickleball gives you a good aerobic workout without as much stress and strain on joints and muscles, as mentioned above. The endorphins and other bioamines that are released with all exercise are useful in elevating self-esteem and combating depression – both problems that can come with older age.
