Exercise Guidance

What does Exercise guidance mean?

The classical way to categorise injuries is the traumatic and non- traumati split. If the traumatic injury requires a precipitating event (a sprain, a fall, an accident…), the non-traumatic injuries, also called overuse injuries, have a different origin. These injuries are more frequent in cyclical sports such as swimming, running, cycling, cross-country skiing and the sports that combine these sports such as triathlon.

Try and imagine the same movement being repeated a million times per year. It’s easy  to assume that the muscles  responsible  for that same movement will get stronger than the ones that are not a part of it. The idea of a muscle imbalance is very old and somewhat of an abstract construct but it still stands. Pain, injuries and problems may occur solely due to this.

Also it is very important to observe the idea of load management. At any given point in time, a certain amount of load is introduced in our system through physical activity. This load varies in intensity, duration and volume. Our ability to continuously take this load without problems keeps us injury free. However if the load becomes to much, overloading takes place and injury is much more likely.

Many problems and recurring injuries can be managed and sorted by identifying correctly these problems.
