Summer is exciting. Vacations are happening, trips to the lake are a regular occurrence, and you are packing in as much swim time as possible. But with all these good times and physical activities, there is the potential for injuries – both major and minor.
Muscle Flexibility & Strength Reduce Risk of Injury
Injuries come about when the body is not flexible, strong and functioning at its best. Fatigue can lead to many injuries and systemic problems. When our muscles are fatigued they are sore, achy, and tight. This can lead to sprain/strain injuries to the muscle and ligaments in the back, neck and extremities.
With all of your summer goings on – family reunions, all-day bar-b-ques, concerts, festivals, days at the lake, the pool, strawberry picking, gardening, boating, fishing, playing sports and more a pulled muscle is not out of the ordinary, especially on days when you are staying active. Summer sports, trips to the beach, and water workouts will frequently lead to pulled muscles if you do not stretch and prepare accordingly.
