🏉Have you seen all the recent injuries in the NRL?🏉
With return to sport underway, we have seen a significant increase in sporting and gym injuries coming through the practice, from ACL injuries to ankle injuries, calves and shoulder injuries.
There are quite a few exercise and warm up programs available that are backed by evidence to reduce injuries;
- FIFA 11+
- FIFA 11 Kids
- Netball Knee
- AFL - Rugby
If you would like some more information or need to pop in for advice and treatment to help manage an injury, call our practice on 6352 3131, or your local Physiotherapist. If you are interested in one of these programs, leave a comment down below with the sport you need a program for. 😁
With the exciting news of gyms reopening this weekend, it is more important than ever to remember to ease back into exercise post-coronavirus. It is advised when returning to gym programs, to take 30 percent off your weights for the first few sessions, before adding 10 percent each week thereafter.
It is also important to remember to stretch, warm up, and cool down (especially in these winter months). Look after your form, check your posture, and if you are having problems, pop in to the practice to have a chat to one of our Physios or EP, or have a chat to a local PT.
Let’s go and support our local gyms who have been doing it tough these last few months.
