How To Avoid Injuries
The key to avoiding injuries is to have strong flexible muscles prior to activity. People often focus on the strength aspect and ignore the flexibility. Stretching is vital to any person undertaking activity.
Two common myths can be ignored:
Stretching should be held for ten seconds: FALSE.
A stretch must be held for thirty seconds before the body recognises this and activates the stretch reflex.
Stretching is only important prior to activity: FALSE.
Latest research shows that static stretching, if only completed prior to competition will not influence performance. Stretching must be undertaken daily to have a positive influence on performance.
We believe that PREHAB is better than REHAB.
Locate your areas of weakness and improve them before injury strikes!
