Turkey Bowl Time: 7 Ways to Prevent Injuries During the Football Game!

While pick-up "Turkey Bowl" football games are a great way to burn off that big holiday meal, they're often a cause for injuries on Thanksgiving Day. Make sure your loved ones take these precautions to protect themselves!

  • Encourage them to play touch – not tackle – football. 
  • Warm up before play. 
  • Wear a mouth guard. 
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes. 
  • Avoid alcohol. 
  • Act their age. 
  • Don’t forget to stretch. This will help reduce muscle soreness the next day.
