Sport, especially Aerial is one of the most exciting activities that there is. Did you know in come classes it’s actually classed as an extreme sport?
No matter what your age it’s guaranteed that it will, at times push you to the extreme, challenge you and heighten your adrenaline levels.
Sometimes our bodies do not like what we are asking them to do, he sometimes unique movement can lead to injury. It’s a given with the amount of hours some of us spend training.
No matter your age, even if you’ve had a break for a few months, the first time you go back your muscles will know all about it.
As we get older our bodies can become painful even through our general working lives. For example, neck and back problems are caused from the process of degenerative changes or work place repetitive strain which is the over use of soft tissue injuries.
With the added extra pressures from aerial sport the body takes even more hits. Each part needs to be ready to be able to complete each action and muscles and joints need to be strong enough to maintain and cope with the demands. Sport can cause long-term injury if it’s not prepared for properly and even more so if the body isn’t looked after once the little aches start.
If you have an injury that after rest has lasted longer than a couple of weeks PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE invest in getting it examined by a qualified therapist or doctor … you only have one body and it’s worth the time and money for it to be properly seen to.
Or as a PREVENTATIVE book in regular sports massages! Give your body the same attention as you would do your hair every 6-8 weeks.
Myself, Jayne Webb, Kalee Datlin and Hayley Ryan and quite a few students have used Alexandra Antoniou and her staff (next door) at ANA Therapies and I HIGHLY recommend her.
