Rehab Access. Avoiding Sports Injuries

Four Injury Prevention Tips

2. Hydrate and nutrition Your body is over 70% water and therefore, requires water to be supple and function at its best. Without adequate water and nutrition, your body’s tissues are more prone to over-stretching and injury. Drink up and if you find that you are very salty when you sweat, make sure to intake more electrolytes with a sports drink like Gatorade. 3. Stay within your abilities We have all heard of the term “weekend warrior” which means a person that has not prepared their body at all to go out and do extensive sports or activities on the weekend. Typically, this person is more prone to injury, just because they are not prepared. If you have a hard time running, then you wouldn’t go out and do a marathon. Make sure that you train and practice for the sport or activity you would like to try. 4. Wear proper equipment When doing activities, make sure you have the right equipment to prevent injuries. Good running shoes, proper hiking boots, helmets and much more can make the difference when it comes to preventing injury.

1. Stretch Stretching is one of the most important ways to prevent injuries. Realize that your muscles and other tissues require water to be elastic. Stretching helps to bring water into the tissues making them more elastic and allowing them to stretch more.This prevents over-stretching and tearing.
