As individualâ€™s increase their cardiovascular activity, sprains and muscle strains on the surrounding tissues of the hamstrings, quadriceps, and calf muscles become several of the most common type of injuries. Back injuries also become more frequent during periods of higher activity. More severe types of injuries can often lead to muscle, tendon, or ligament tears as well as bone fractures. A successful exercise program provides a complete training routine which equally conditions different muscle groups while reducing the chance of injury. In addition, seeking chiropractic care and physical therapy to help during injury prevention can further maximize an individualâ€™s performance.
Exercise related injuries mainly occur due to improper biomechanics. The improper movements of an individualâ€™s structure during physical activities or sports are often the root cause of spinal misalignments and muscle imbalances. If the body is not moving or functioning the way it was designed to, it can place unnecessary pressure and stress on a single side of the body or an incorrect area of the body.
An injury and its associated symptoms, can tremendously reduce an individualâ€™s ability to perform to their fullest capacity, ultimately altering an individualâ€™s lifestyle. Regular chiropractic care and massage therapy can help diagnose and determine the source of your injury as well as help treat the injury and its symptoms.Â Combining chiropractic care along with physical exercise this summer can ultimately improve your fitness, health and wellbeing.Â
With summer just around the corner, increasingly more people are starting to break out of their sedentary winter season routines and activity levels are on the rise. This increase of cardiovascular activities, such as running, biking, swimming, and other exercises, have many benefits in the body but, as with any type of physical activity, with an increase in physical activity, there is also a higher chance of injury.
