Common Causes Of Sport Injuries

  1. Over-training
    • A sports injury can result from excessive fatigue in combination with insufficient recovery time. Insufficient rest before or after high-intensity training would weaken or damage the body, therefore increasing the risk of injury.
  2. Repetitive overuse
    • Most athletes tend to repeat the same motion over and over. Due to this repetitive movement, certain muscles or joints get overused and gradually become weakened or damaged, resulting in a sports injury
  3. Skipping warm-up
    • It is important that you get your body prepared before you start any physical activities. A proper warm-up helps to increase body temperature and circulation to the muscles. 20 minutes of stretching and light cardio exercises will improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury.
  4. Poor Posture/technique
    • Improper posture or techniques put a great burden to the joints and muscles that are used during the workout. Initially, it would start off with minor symptoms such as mild discomfort but over time it can result in a serious injury.

Prevention of Sport Injuries

  1. Ensure you have enough rest and recovery time before the next training.
  2. Prepare your body with a proper warm-up.
  3. Improve/Correct your techniques by having a coach or a professional to monitor.
  4. Use proper clothing gear and equipment for the related sport.
  5. Improve your posture and movement by seeing chiropractors at Healing Hands to ensure proper alignment of your spine
