Injury Prevention

There are many things we can do for injury prevention– as both athletes and non-athletes – to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place.

Below are two articles to get the ball rolling on prevention:

‘Understanding Muscle Tension’ and ‘Nutrition for Athletes’.

Most of us – knowingly or unknowingly – suffer from muscle tension. There are a number of factors contributing to this, and I have endeavoured to give you a brief explanation of each. Following this are 14 recommendations that you can implement right now for injury prevention.

In ‘Nutrition for Athletes’, I will cover 4 categories:

  • Training
  • Pre-competition
  • During competition
  • Recovery from training or competition

3 Sub-Categories:

  • Those requiring near maximal effort for short bursts
  • Those requiring medium effort for 1-90 minutes
  • Those whose duration of effort is greater than 90 minutes

Again, while the information and recommendations are aimed at athletes, non-athletes can benefit from this knowledge as well.

At the bottom of this page are testimonials from past and current patients who have decided to take a ‘proactive’ approach to their health and wellbeing.

I will be placing additional information on this site over time. If you would like to be informed when this happens, please contact me by phone or email with your details.

If emailing, please put ‘Injury Prevention Update’ in the ‘Subject’ field.
