Steer Clear of Summertime Injuries

Now that summer is upon us, many people are becoming more active and enjoying activities like golf, gardening or swimming. With an increase in activity, we see an increase in related injuries here at Team Health Care Clinic. Here are some helpful reminders to keep you enjoying your favorite activities all summer long.Happy couple walking

Avoiding Injury

Most of us know that the best thing we can do to avoid injury during our favorite activities is to exercise regularly… but what should you do if you’re reintroducing your body to activity? Take it slow.

If it’s been a while since you’ve been active, it’s important to prepare your body prior to becoming active. Stretching will help loosen your muscles and prepare them for movements they haven’t seen in a while. Be sure to take frequent breaks as you ease back your activity of choice. Because many injuries occur when the body and mind are tired, taking time to rest will help you avoid additional risks. Additionally, proper hydration is critical during any type of physical activity.

What to do if you’ve been injured

If you’ve already sustained an injury, Team Health Care Clinic is here to help you get back into action. For many muscle related injuries, physical therapy and/or chiropractic adjustments will help a person recover safely and as quickly as possible. Not sure where to start? Schedule a free consultation to determine your most appropriate path to recovery.

We hope you enjoy your summer activities and time with family and friends.
