In summer kids play more and note that sports are not only with all the pros. Increase in physical activity means increase in sports-related injury too and here are some tips how to avoid those.
It is highly suggested to warm-up and stretch before beginning with the physical activity. This will keep the blood flowing and muscles will be stretch out. It is to note that the muscles become more elastic with better blood flow. Once you are through with the warm-up and stretching part, you will less likely be getting cramps or discomfort.
Sports expert says to try rope jumping or doing jumping jacks to maximize muscle elasticity.
The second suggestion is to hydrate enough before, during, and after the activity. It is important as injury can be prevented if your body is hydrated. Body gets quickly hydrated in summer due to sweating. Carrying a bottle of water while exercising is recommended.
Don’t wear wrong shoes. The footwear and other related equipment should be proper. When running the footwear should provide good support to the ankles and soles. When hiking the shoes should perform the perfect task.
Sportsmen who have joint pains must not forget to wear a brace during physical activity as this will help in easing discomfort and also prevent further damage to the joints.
Many discontinue physical activity during winter and this is never suggested by sports experts as one may experience unnecessary strain on muscles and joints.
It is also important to know the limits of physical activity during the summer months. The sun, heat and humidity may make you tired soon. It is better to end workout early or opt for sitting in between. Not paying attention to the signs of body may cause much harm in future.
Athletes and sportsmen should always listen to the body as even a minor injury may take weeks of time to recover. High-intensity injury may put you on rest for months.
Sports people should be more careful while cycling, running or participating in competitive sports. Lots of strain can be experienced on joints and muscles.
Injury in sports related activities cannot be ruled out and cannot be eliminated. So it is better to take necessary precautionary steps to keep yourself away from injuries as much as possible.
