There are many common Pickleball injuries and ways to prevent them using the Rollga Method and Bodywork Tools

Pickleball, a paddle sport combining elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis, has seen an explosive growth in popularity. However, as with any physical activity, there's an associated risk of injury. As a fitness professional, I've observed and treated various pickleball-related injuries. The key lies not just in the treatment but in prevention and proper recovery. In this context, Rollga's range of bodywork tools emerges as a comprehensive solution for both preventing and treating common pickleball injuries, enhancing mobility, and improving flexibility.

1) Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): Caused by repetitive wrist and arm motions.

2) Rotator Cuff Injuries: Resulting from overuse of the shoulder during serves and overhead shots.

3) Achilles Tendinitis: Due to sudden movements and changes in direction.
