Discussing Ways To Avoid An Injury

“ I Don’t Believe In Giving Up, But I KnowWhen I Have Endured Enough Pain.”

DON’T LET PAIN KEEP YOU IN THE SIDELINES

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 • Do coordination training • Do endurance training

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 individualswho just jump into the activitywithout 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.
