Sports Injury Rebound Program
"Sports injuries" are injuries that happen when playing sports or exercising. Some are from accidents. Others can result from poor training practices or improper gear. Some people get injured when they are not in proper condition. Not warming up or stretching enough before you play or exercise can also lead to injuries. The most common sports injuries are:
- Sprains and strains
- Knee injuries
- Swollen muscles
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Pain along the shin bone
Children and adults are prone to injuries while exercising or playing sports especially if they aren't observing basic injury prevention strategies and using a professionally designed program.
Nothing is more disappointing than when you are injured while exercising or playing a sport you love. Injuries can sideline you for a day, a week, even months. In the worst case, serious injuries can impact you for life.
Who Is at Greatest Risk for Sports Injuries?
If a professional athlete dislocates a joint or tears a ligament, it makes the news. But anyone who plays sports can be injured. Three groups—children and adolescents, middle-aged athletes, and women—are particularly vulnerable.
Here are a few basic tips to help you prevent injuries:
- Make warmups and cooldowns part of your routine. Warmup exercises, such as stretching or light jogging, can help minimize the chances of muscle strain or other soft tissue injury. They also make the body's tissues warmer and more flexible. Cooldown exercises loosen the muscles that have tightened during exercise.
- When jumping, land with your knees bent.
- Do warmup exercises not just before vigorous activities like running, but also before less vigorous ones such as golf.
- Don't overdo.
What happens AFTER you are injured?
A key part of rehabilitation from sports injuries is a graduated exercise program designed to return the injured body part to a normal level of function. Although it is important to get moving as soon as possible, you must also take time to rest following an injury. All injuries need time to heal; proper rest will help the process. At Doctor Of Fitness, we can guide you regarding the proper balance between rest and rehabilitation.
