Helping To Prevent Injuries

If you are just starting out where fitness is concerned, or are returning to sport after a lengthy absence, there are a few things you can do to help ward off injuries. Ethos Health physiotherapist Dave Naylor has these essential tips for doing the right thing by your body:


1. Good Wheels (Footwear) – don’t create a whole new body in yesterday’s shoes. Your feet and lower limbs will thank you if you give them a good supportive shoe.

2. S-T-R-E-T-C-H – muscles get tighter as we get older and as we exercise. Stretching assists in relieving this tightness. Get in the habit of stretching between sessions, with 30-second holds a good starting point.

3. RICER (Rest Ice Compression Elevation Refer) – if you are starting to get pain during and after exercise, apply some ice straight after exercising. And if your pain or stiffness is simply not going away, do the Refer thing and consult a health professional sooner rather than later.


Pre-season ‘torture’ sessions

Get the edge over your rivals with one of fit-fy’s gruelling 80-90 minute ‘torture’ pre-season sessions. The sessions are also a great team-bonding exercise and are set in and around Newcastle’s beaches and coastline. They incorporate stairs, sand, hills and strength work.
