Discussing Sports Injuries with Martin Weinstein PT, MPT, COMT and Kathleen Weinstein PT, DPT.

Dear Valued Client,

SPRAINS: A sprain occurs when the connective tissue that joins the end of the bone with another is stretched or torn.Those connective tissues are known as ligaments. Sprains are caused by trauma such as a fall or blow to the body that knocks a joint out of position. Ankles, knees and wrists are most vulnerable to sprains. However, back, neck and shoulder sprains are very common too. STRAINS: A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon is pulled, torn or twisted. Strains are non-contact injuries, such as those that occur from overstretching. A common example of a strain is a muscle spasm. A

There is nothing more exciting than taking on a new challenge, sport or activity. For most of us, the thrill of accomplishing a physical goal is what we live for. However, are you prepared for it? The term “weekend warrior” means a person who doesn’t really train for what they are doing; they just go out and do it on the weekend. How do most injuries occur? Most sports injuries occur from ill-prepared individuals who just jump into the activity without first increasing their strength, endurance and flexibility. Your muscles, tendons, ligaments and other tissues need to be warmed up to work properly.They take enormous strain during running and sports activities. Therefore, if they are not in top condition, they are more prone to injury. Injuries increase as you age. If you think back to when you were in your late teens, you could go into a full sprint no problem, take a flying leap and do a whole lot without the slightest thought about it. As you get older, your tissues become less elastic and in fact a little “drier”. When your muscle, tendon and ligament tissues have enough water, they are supple and stretchy, allowing you to do a lot of activities. Keep yourself hydrated and stretch often to maintain elasticity in your muscles. Before and after. Knowing the right exercises to prepare for fitness activities is key. Our physical therapy experts have years of experience rehabilitating people after injuries and returning them pain-free to the activities they enjoy. What some people might not know is that physical therapists put specific exercise plans together based on your needs to prevent injury. If you do start to experience pain with activities, Eastern Shore Physical Therapy can get you back to enjoying your activities pain-

free. Call today to learn more how our programs can help you feel great! Preparing your body. It is important to do sports activities, fitness and a host of other physical activities to keep you healthy and happy. With a little bit of preparation, you can easily do these activities and decrease

your risk for injury. • Do stretch often • Do strength training

“My first experience with Eastern Shore Physical Therapy PT was talking with Martin through Facebook. I was always impressed how helpful and responsive Martin was, he told me about the Lower Back/Sciatica Workshop so I decided to take a chance...despite my hesitation. My first thoughts were “why bother” due to failed therapy and no progress in the past. As a result of the Workshop, I decided to move forward with therapy and on April 12th. I realized immediately that thiswasacompletelydifferentexperience fromanyotherPTencounter.The treatment was significantly helping my pain, and the staff was so professional and patient with me. Martin introduced me to the laser treatment and I’ve been watching my pain disappear. Overall, this experience has changed my life for the better, and it is all thanks to Eastern Shore PTand their staff.” - Deborah C. This experience has changed my life!
