Some of the most common injuries we see around this time of the year are overuse injuries.
People become more active. We may do more of the activities we haven't done much over the winter such as running, walking or biking. Or we may decide to take up a new sport such as roller blading.
Whatever the reason for the increase in activity it is essential to start slowly and increase the load progressively. After limited exposure to an activity for most of the winter it is generally not a good idea to jog for 30-40 minutes. Progressive and gradual loading is a cornerstone of any good exercise routine.
Please contact us if you would like a progressively designed program for an activity of your choice or if you would like us to address any pains or aches that you've started experiencing with increased exposure to activity.
