Recommended sports to relieve common pains
Depending on the injuries our body suffers, we often don’t know if it’s correct to play sports or not, and in such case, which sports are suitable. Firstly, you must bear in mind that the majority of the pains or lesions are derived from sedentarism. Anywell practised physical activity is preventive. At the same time, the incorrect practice of sports can derive in injuries or bad technique. Before leaving sports, the best thing is to consult with an expert who will analyze the technique and the load you are doing, to correct and to quantify due.
For back pain swimming is the most recommended sport, limiting yourself to crol or backstroke styles, since they are done in neutral positions, and swimming in a linear way without forcing. Although the pilates method it is not a sport, it is also a physical suitable activity, since it strengthens what is called the “energy center” or “power house”. With its continued practice, you can not only improve the column’s health, but also eliminate pains.
For this pain we must look for low impact activities, and water is again the first step because it’s free of impacts. Proprioception, muscle-building and strength are basic to rehabilitate quickly and safely. Aqua Fitness and Aqua Running are a great options to start recovering the knees functionality.
