All types of physical activity come with a risk of injury. Some occur because of lack of experience or knowledge about the right form or technique while some happen because of over-training or failure to wear appropriate gear or equipment. It is very important therefore to heed the advice of pros when it comes reducing your risk of exercise injury. Take note that the operative word here is ‘reducing’ and not 'preventing.'
Unfortunately, exercise-related injuries can happen out of nowhere, even with an encyclopedic knowledge of proper form and 100 percent preparedness. Depending on the nature and severity of the injury, you can either stop or continue exercising but you should always remember to consult with a doctor first to avoid making the injury worse. If your doctor gives you the green signal to keep working out, you’d be happy to know that exercising can actually increase your rate of recovery from some injuries by up to 25 percent.
Let the Recovery Begin!
If there is one thing you need to understand about exercise-related injuries, it’s that healing is dependent upon blood supply. Increased circulation is a critical first step in the recovery of a muscle pull or strain. When circulation is good, nutrients, oxygen, and cells that fight off infection are easily transported to areas that badly need repair. This is usually the case with athletes who tend to have a better blood supply compared to those who lead sedentary lifestyles or have unhealthy habits like drinking or smoking.
In terms of improving circulation exercise is a must. However, some areas are slow to respond to exercise such as injured and fatty tissue areas. As a scientifically tested and proven fitness product for over 30 years, Sweet Sweat helps increase circulation to the exercising muscles during exercise. * This then ramps up warm up and recovery time, making exercise easier while helping to reduce the risk of aches, cramps, and muscle pulls.
