With spring in full bloom, many of us are ready to get out and moving. After being cooped up and unable to participate in some of our favorite sports and recreational activities, our bodies forget how strenuous they can be.
Our minds tend to remember where we were physically last year, and we tend to overdo physical activity that we just aren’t ready for this early in the season. With this comes some common injuries related to overuse and strain.
We treat a wide variety on injuries at Concordia, but some of the most common springtime injuries include:
If you find yourself with a potential injury from your springtime fun, there are a few things that may help. First, remember that if you have more than mild soreness, you may have a true injury. To treat your injuries remember the acronym RICE.
If your issue persists seek medical attention and ask your doctor for a prescription for physical therapy to promote a quick recovery. Visit us at Concordia Outpatient Physical Therapy to obtain the fastest and maximum recovery.
