The way in which an athlete’s body is capable of moving is, more times than not, the difference between winning and losing. Whether a professional athlete, a neighborhood walker or any type of athlete between, it takes work to improve your skill. Why put in all that work, cause all that stress and strain on your body, and risk injury due to lack mechanics and recovery?
Athletic injuries can be a result of acute injuries, repetitive motion injuries, or an injury caused by a constant stress being placed on the body. Overuse or constant stress scenarios can eventually lead to a decrease in strength, loss of range of motion, and injury. It is important to make sure that the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are functioning the way they are designed to. This will help minimize the risk of injury.
