That's right, more important than exercise initially is a change in diet. Before you buy a gym membership or even some new spandex, take a week to make some dietary changes. If you have access to a good dietician or trainer is right approach for achieving maximum overall wellness.
It is important to note that all sports carry a risk of injury. The severity and frequency of injury varies depending on the sport, position played, amount of preparation building up to competition, level of competition, and the age of the “athlete”.
There are many predisposing factors for injuries in sport. Three major factors which affect the prevalence of injury in younger athletes are: lifestyle, seriousness/level of competition, and amount of preparation.
What to do following an injury:
Follow the PRICE recommendation (P – position, R – rest, I – ice, C – compression, E – elevation).
Seek medical advice (Doctor/Sports Physician, Physiotherapist, Biokineticst).
Do extensive rehabilitation to prevent future injury.
Do “pre-habilitation” to avoid any other injuries.
