It is fantastic news that you have decided to get yourself back into shape again and to lose those excess kilograms that you have been carrying around of the past 2 to 3 years. The pandemic is still taking its toll on people even now that we have decided that we must live with it. People stopped going to the gymnasium over the course of these past three years and they didn’t even get themselves outside to go for a brisk walk. It can be tempting to think that you can just begin again where you stopped before but if you do that, you are risking injury and putting back your training by a number of weeks.
You do not want to find yourself needing frozen shoulder treatment because you just couldn’t go a little bit easier when starting off your new exercise routine. Shoulder pain can be incredibly debilitating and can cause you all sorts of pain in your neck and shoulders. It’s likely that it will force you to put off your new exercise routine and that is a situation that you do not want to find yourself in. You should be trying to avoid sports injuries from the outset and so the following are some top tips that will hopefully help you to make that happen.
- Take a day off – There is nowhere where it says that you have to work out seven days a week and so it makes perfect sense that you would want to take at least one day off a week to help your body to heal and help you recuperate. Your body needs a rest and if you don’t provide it with that rest then you’re going to experience sports injuries.
- The right sports gear – Depending on the activity that you want to take part in so that you can get fit and to lose your excess weight, you need to make sure that you are wearing the right kind of sports gear every single time. If you’re taking part in contact sports then make sure you were the essential pads that can stop you from falling in the wrong way and needing frozen shoulder treatment.
- Always stretch – This is something that you should not only do at the beginning of your exercise routine but at the end as well. By increasing your flexibility, you reduce the chances of getting injured and so this is something that should be included in your daily fitness routine and try to include it every day even when you are on your well deserved vacation time.
- Use the correct techniques – If you are unfamiliar with the techniques that are needed for the activity that you have chosen then it would make sense that you might want to talk to your local sports physiotherapist before you begin any exercise routine. If possible, get yourself a sports coach who will be well versed in the techniques that are required to keep you injury free.
When you were younger, it’s likely that your sports coach at school told you to push through the pain barrier but that is very poor advice indeed. If you feel pain or discomfort in your shoulder or anywhere else in your body then you need to stop and you need to rest and get essential advice.
