Sports Injury Prevention

As an athlete or someone who is active, a sports injury can interrupt your entire routine and your daily life. Because physical activity is such a vital aspect of your health and wellness, sports injury physical therapists advocate for the belief that every one of us is safer with the appropriate sports injury prevention knowledge. Learn more about sports injury prevention by speaking to one of our Holstein, MO physical therapists and minimize the risk of a sports injury by doing the following:

  • Warm up

    Cold muscles have a higher risk of tearing, while warmed up muscles have more flexibility. As your muscles warm up, the flexibility allows them to absorb movement more easily and be more resilient against harsh, sudden motions that can otherwise leads to injury.

  • Use proper technique

    Sports injuries often occur when you try to do an activity without any experience or training. Any athlete needs a lot of practice to perfect the technical aspects of any sport, but be sure to learn the foundations of appropriate movement technique before taking part in a sport or activity. For example, knowing to bend your knees while you land from a jump can protect you from certain sports injuries to the ankle, knee, hip, and spine.

  • Use the necessary equipment

    It is vital that you use the appropriate equipment while being active. The equipment should not only be right for the sport, but also be working properly and safe to use. This includes the following:

    • Safety gear such as helmets, pads, or safety glasses
    • Clothing that fits you well and is designed for physical activity
    • Footwear that is appropriate for the activity
  • Play in a safe environment

    Other than using the appropriate gear to play the sport, it is crucial that the Holstein, MO location where you are playing is safe. A sports injury can occur when the surface your are playing on is wet, slippery, or muddy. Even if you are conscientious, warming up and stretching adequately before activity, dangerous conditions around you can lead to a serious sports injury.

  • Stay hydrated

    Drinking sufficient water is a fundamental health practice that everyone should do. If you are practicing in physical activity, drink a lot of of water before, during, and after your workout. It is vital to constantly hydrate during physical activity and afterward to replenish the fluids you have lost through sweating.

    In addition to staying hydrated, practicing good nutrition also decreases your risk of a sports injury.

As an athlete, one of your priorities should be eating a balanced diet of nutrient-rich foods and receiving the right number of calories. Even with precautionary measures and practicing good judgement when participating in a sport or being active, every now and then an injury is unavoidable.
