KENTWOOD, Mich.– With lots of people working out in your home, one regional chiropractic physician said he is seeing more overuse injuries recently.
Overuse injuries occur when our muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons go through repeated tension.
Those injuries are showing up in Doctor Reid Meador's workplace, Chiropractic Unlimited, in the type of back pain, as well as leg and wrist sprains.
He said one reason why is that people aren't making the effort to heat up, stretch or hydrate in the house before an exercise like they would when they're in a gym or a fitness class. And, that can cause problems in time.
“I think among the greatest things today is people are simply finding videos online and, possibly they discover one they like, suddenly they're doing that four or 5 times a week,” described Dr. Meador.
“It's sort of the same motions over and over which, again, returns to that overuse injury portion of it. So I ‘d say discover 3 or four various workouts that are working different parts of the body, and try to do those so that those other parts of the body get that rest and recovery that they need.”
That discomfort can even appear as many individuals are working from home today.
Doctor Meador said it's crucial to have a proper work area that permits people to stay up straight and keep the shoulders back to avoid tension on the hip, neck and back.
