So earlier this week, it was the first day of spring. That is great news, winter is nearing it's end and summer is around the corner. With that in mind, I would like to remind everyone to stay safe as we come out of hibernation and join various running groups, basketball leagues or other outdoor sporting activities.
To ensure your safety and reduce your risk for injuries, make sure to stretch before and after your sporting activities and pace your activities to avoid overuse conditions or serious injury.
Many sporting injuries can be prevented with proper strength and conditioning, stretching regularly and addressing any current problems. At AccuCare Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab we provide Free injury or wellness screenings to identify any weakness or flexibility concerns before they become a problem. Give us a call at 630-761-0900 to schedule a injury or wellness screening prior to joining any new sporting activities.
