Sports injuries are common among athletes, weekend warrior athletes, and anyone who is active with exercise, recreation, yard work, and normal everyday activities. Some common sports injuries include low back strain, shoulder rotator cuff sprains, ankle strains, knee dislocations, hamstring pulls, and achilles strains. Yoga Therapy Bar provides physical therapy, yoga, Pilates, and wellness services for sports injuries. This unique blend allows customization of programs to include low intensity and low impact exercises using yoga and Pilates during the healing process. The health care system in America faces obstacles which prevent many from scheduling an appointment with a health care provider soon after a sports injury. Dr. Nekita Sullivan, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Yoga and Pilates Teacher, Certified Health Education Specialist, and owner of Yoga Therapy Bar has 22 years of experience treating sports injuries. Check out some of her tips for managing and recovering from a sports injury.
One of the most common sports injuries is low back strain. This injury often occurs when the back is put in an awkward position that requires it to twist or rotate at a quick speed (pushing, pulling, or lifting something heavy is also a common mechanism of injury). Pain is usually the first symptom due to inflammation of the injured area. Other symptoms include soreness, stiffness, swelling, and difficulty with simple movements such as sitting, standing, walking, and lying down. One tip is to reduce inflammation which can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness is applying ice to the painful area. An ice pack can be easily applied to the lower back. A second tip is to rest the injured area. Lying down on your side or with a pillow between your knees can give your injured back a rest. A third tip is to monitor the pain daily to see if it is increasing or decreasing. If the pain does not decrease daily, it may be best to contact your health care provider. Yoga Therapy Bar provides consultations by phone, zoom, or email to discuss the basic details of the injury. The next step is to schedule and evaluation to diagnose the injury and develop a plan to assist with managing and resolving the injury so that you can return to living your best life at home, school, work, and in the community.
