ADVICE ON STARTING NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION WORKOUTS

 

 

 

FLORIDA PODIATRIST, DR. BRANDI JOHNSON STATES, "START NEW WORKOUTS GRADUALLY - INCREASE YOUR STAMINA AND THE LENGTH OF YOUR WORKOUTS GRADUALLY TO AVOID OVERUSE INJURIES SUCH AS STRESS FRACTURES OR TENDON STRAINS AND SPRAINS.  STRETCHING YOUR MUSCLES BEFORE AND AFTER WORKOUTS ALSO HELPS PREVENTS THESE TYPES OF INJURIES.  IF YOU DO FEEL YOU'VE SPRAINED YOUR ANKLE, BE SURE TO SEEK TREATMENT RIGHT AWAY.  UNTREATED OR REPEATED SPRAINED ANKLES MAY LEAD TO CHRONIC ANKLE INSTABILITY, A CONDITION THAT CAUSES PERSISTENT PAIN AND A 'GIVING AWAY' OF THE ANKLE.  USE GOOD TECHNIQUE - IMPROPER EXERCISE TECHNIQUES CAN RESULT IN INJURY TO THE TENDONS OR LIGAMENTS IN YOUR FEET AND ANKLES.  INCORRECT POSTURE OR MISUSE OF EXERCISE EQUIPMENT CAN CAUSE DECREASED STABILIZATION IN THE FOOT AND ANKLE, LEADING TO JOINT SPRAINS AND MUSCLE SPRAINS."

ACADEMY CLINICS HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TREATING MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF SPORTS INJURIES CONSERVATIVELY, AVOIDING THE USE OR SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS WHENEVER POSSIBLE.  WE RECEIVE VERY GOOD RESULTS AS WE TREAT THE PERSON IN A HOLISTIC MANNER.  IF A PATIENT HAS EXPERIENCED A SPRAIN OR STRAIN, NOT ONLY DO WE INSTRUCT THEM IN PROPER HOME CARE SUCH AS REST, STRETCHING, EXERCISES AND PROPER FOOT WEAR BUT WE HAVE A COMPLETE ARAY OF PHYSICAL THERAPY EQUIPMENT AS WELL AS 3 OF OUR CLINICIANS ARE CERTIFIED IN ACTIVE RELEASE THERAPY.
