Iberia Sports & Rehab. Avoiding Common Active Injuries


While it is always awise decision to consultwith a physical therapist, there are some tipsyou can implement intoyourpersonal life aswell, in order to decrease your risk of sustaining an injury. These include: • Stretching. This is one of the most important ways to prevent injuries. Your tissues require water in order to be elastic, and stretching helps to bring water into the tissues. This increases muscle flexibility and prevents them from becoming stiff or tight, thus decreasing the chances of them over-stretching and/ or tearing. • Hydrating and eating nutritious meals. Did you know that your body is over 70% water? Because of this, it requires water in orderto remain supple and function properly.Without adequate waterand nutrition,yourbody’s tissues are more prone to over- stretching and injury. Make sure you drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, and always keep a water bottle with you whenyouareworkingout. Ifneeded,youcanalsoreplenishyour electrolytes with sports drinks, such as Gatorade. • Stayingwithinyourabilities. It is important to train and practice for any physical activity you’d like to try. Start small in the beginning and build up from there. For example, if you aren’t usedtorunningbutyou’d liketocompletea5k,don’tstartoffwith

3-mile runs. Begin with a half mile and slowly build up. When you push your body past its current limits, you make yourself more prone to injuries because your body is not prepared for the physical demands being asked of it. A physical therapist can help you understand the limits of your body and can create an exercise plan for you to reach your physical goals. • Using the proper equipment. When engaging in any type of physical activity, it is important to make sure you have the right equipment. For example, running shoes, hiking boots, helmets, and more can help you avoid injury and stay safe while doing the activities you enjoy. They can make all the difference when it comes to preventing injuries. What should I do now?
