Joint injuries - how to avoid them?

Although sport is good for you, it unfortunately involves the risk of various types of injury. Intensive training, practising contact sports, a poorly balanced diet and bad exercise technique often lead to joint injuries. We suggest how to avoid them?

Joint injuries - how to avoid them? Do not overdo the intensity

Harder does not necessarily mean better. Many enthusiasts of active lifestyles do not realise that one of the most common causes of joint injuries is overexertion. It is therefore a good idea to use common sense, as such injuries may lead to a more or less permanent exclusion from training. So measure your strength by your intentions! In order to avoid joint injuries, it is enough to reduce the intensity of the exercises performed, put less weight on the barbell or run two kilometres less.

Joint injuries - how to avoid them? Remember to warm up!

Failure to warm up before training can lead to joint injuries. Unheated muscles and joints are much more susceptible to damage, which can occur even at low intensity. Furthermore, not warming up often results in working in an incomplete range of motion, which increases the chance of overload. Therefore, answering the question of how to avoid joint injuries, we suggest taking a few minutes to adapt the body, including individual elements of the musculoskeletal system (including joint capsules, ligaments and tendons) and muscles, to much more intensive work. A properly prepared body will adapt much better to the increasing level of fatigue.

Joint injuries - how to avoid them? Take care of your diet!

A healthy diet and a well-balanced diet help to maintain a healthy body weight. This is important because excessive weight can put additional strain on our joints. Therefore, reducing excess weight is one way to avoid injuries, including joint injuries.

 

However, a diet is not only about losing weight and fighting excess weight. Complete meals are a source of many valuable ingredients that help maintain the healthy condition of the musculoskeletal system and strengthen its structures. Protein (especially collagen proteins), vitamins C, D and K, magnesium and calcium are responsible for maintaining healthy bones and proper muscle function. In addition, do not forget about supplementation with preparations containing numerous components, which are attributed with beneficial properties aimed at joint protection (e.g. glucosamine, MSM, frankincense extract and boswellic acid, chondroitin or hyaluronic acid).
