MSG Network spoke to Moira M. McCarthy, MD, sports medicine surgeon at HSS, during the Invesco Legends Charleston semifinals to discuss common injuries she observes with treating recreational and professional tennis players. Dr. McCarthy cited, “Very commonly we see overuse injuries. These guys play a lot of tennis. They practice a lot. They play a lot and they overuse a lot of muscles.” Furthermore, Dr. McCarthy advised, “So what we find is really important is that they [players] do a lot of stretching, a lot of strengthening of certain muscle groups to help prevent injury.”
