EXERCISE MUST BE STARTED GRADUALLY

 

 

PROMINENT SPORTS PODIATRIST, KARL LOCKETT FROM SUDNEY, AUSTRALIA STATES, "WHEN STARTING SOME EXTREME YET POPULAR EXERCISE PROGRAMS SUCH AS BOOTCAMP, CROSSFIT AND OBSTACLE-RACE-STYLE WORKOUTS, DUE TO THE CRIPPLING INJURIES THEY POTENTIALLY CAUSE ON JOINTS AND MUSCLES, START SLOWLY.  WITH NO-LIMITS MINDSET, SUCH PROGRAMS CAN PUT BEGINNERS AT RISK OF OVERUSE INJURIES, IF THEY LET THE CULTURE OF 'NO PAIN, NO GAIN' OVERSHADOW THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF CONDUCTING A SAFE WORKOUT.  I HAVE SEEN A NUMBER OF PATIENTS WITH INJURIES CAUSED BY INTENSE WORKOUTS WITH A TOO-HARD-TOO-SOON APPROACH ON BODIES THAT ARE AT A BEGINNER LEVEL OF EXERCISE.  SOME HAVE CRIPPLING PAIN FROM AILMENTS SUCH AS ADVANCED PLANTAR FASCIITIS, TO TORN LIGAMENTS WHICH TAKE A LONG TIME TO HEAL, TO LESS SERIOUS SOFT-TISSUE PAIN THAT KEEPS THEM OUT OF THE ACTION FOR WEEKS.  FOR THOSE WHO STILL WANT TO JOIN AN EXTREME EXERCISE PROGRAM IS TO FIND A TRAINER YOU CAN TRUST TO BUILD YOUR ABILITIES FROM A BEGINNER'S LEVEL - NOT JUST DRIVE YOU HARD FROM DAY ONE."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS IS A FIRM BELIEVER IN EXERCISE AND WE USE THIS A KEY ELEMENT IN REHABILITATION PROGRAM WE DEVELOP WITH OUR PATIENTS.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT, HONEST ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTIC, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
