Everyone wants to be at their fittest: their most healthy self. Sometimes however, the volume of sports that we do can create problems. Sometimes starting or coming back to a sport highlights an underlying problem.
Amongst the top sports injuries in the UK are:
Remember prevention is just as important as cure. Make sure you are conditioned for your activities by working out and building up muscle strength. Start with a gentle warm up to increase blood circulation and increase flexibility. Learn when to stop: getting to know your body and when it is fatiguing is very important. Your muscles help protect your other structures, so when they are tired you will lose some of your protection from injury.
Improve Recovery After Exercise
Stronger and healthier bodies recover faster from exercise.
A tailored programme of stretches may help your problem.
Speed up Recovery
When you are injured your body is programmed to repair itself. Sometimes we just need a little helping hand to redirect or restart our healing processes, or even speed them up.
Release Muscle Tension
Tight or weak muscles do not feel comfortable when you try to perform well at your chosen sport. A full assessment will determine what is short and or weak and why.
Relieve Tired and Achey Muscles
Perhaps you feel tired when you run in one muscle before any other, or perhaps you have one area that aches more than it should after exercise?
