Winter Sports Injuries

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 9:30 PM

Australia is a sports-loving nation, during winter Australian’s just can’t seem to get enough of AFL, Rugby League & Union plus the recent surge in netball, of course there are many other popular sports that most Aussie’s play in winter such as skiing & snowboarding just to name two. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), over 60% of Australians participate in sports and exercise programs – we just love sport.


The Medibank Private Safe Sports Report found that their member’s main motivation to exercise were: general health and fitness, weight loss, to have fun and enjoy social benefits (in that order).  The report also revealed that ‘individual’ rather than ‘team-based’ activities were the most popular. This is consistent with published data from the ABS Year Book. Walking, aerobics, fitness, swimming and golf ranked among the top five participation sports/physical activities.


According to the Monash University Accident Research Centre approximately 5.2 M Australians suffer a sports-related injury each year. Surveys indicate that the most common injuries (in order) are to the knee, ankle, foot, back and shoulder. Many of these injuries arise from the very popular winter sports we play.


Statistically, sports injuries peak in the months of May, June and July. This is not surprising because cold muscles, tendons and ligaments increase your risk of sustaining injury & as well our most popular contact sports like rugby & AFL are played in these months.


Regular exercise has been shown to reduce the probability of developing heart disease, diabetes, mental illness and many types of cancer (particularly breast and colon cancer).  So don't let the fear of sustaining a sports injury deter you from participating in winter exercise/sport. The benefits certainly outweigh the risks.


In order to reduce the risk of a winter sports injury, your Chiropractor is most likely to recommend some or all of the following:


- Get the correct advice on the right activity program for you

- Warm up and cool down

- Have the correct equipment for your activity

- Begin slowly and gradually build up to the challenge

- Keep hydrated

- Listen to your body

- Give yourself one or two recovery days each week

- Rest an injury, don’t try to ‘work through’ the pain

- Progress at your own pace and don’t overdo it

- Get regular chiropractic check-ups


Before beginning any exercise program, it is advised that you visit with your chiropractor, especially if you have had a previous injury or musculoskeletal condition. Your chiropractor is trained to assess/evaluate your body and offer valuable advice to assist you in preventing winter sports injuries.


Regular exercise and chiropractic care are recommended for a healthy lifestyle.


Towards Wellness

Fight Your Pillow.

Fold your pillow in half, then let go. If the pillow springs back, it’s in good shape. If it just lays there bent like a soggy potato chip, get rid of it. It’s not worthy of supporting your head and neck adequately while you sleep.


Stretch of the Month

Air squats warm up your lower body nicely.

1. Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart and arms at your side.

2. Slowly lower your glutes (buttocks) toward the ground as you lift your arms in front of you to shoulder level, aim to keep your knees in line with your feet.

3. As you squat, keep a neutral spine and lift your chest. It may help to focus on a spot in front of you.

4. Once your quadriceps (thighs) are level with the floor, reverse the motion and return to a starting position.

5. Repeat 10 to 15 times.

Both everyday and idealistic discussions of smut bear explored the dispute of sexually unrestrained texts as pedagogy. While sundry commentators and scholars have acknowledged the instructional qualities of obscenity, there is no unlimited consensus as to what porn teaches its consumers and how it works as an educator. Porn is increasingly itself the national of enlightening texts, with ‘porn literacy’ being debated as a potency addition to the auxiliary splendour day-school curriculum in the Cooperative Territory and Australia. This article presents an overview of the field of ‘porn as pedagogy’ and pedagogy approximately porn. It is bashful in scope, relying at bottom on latest check in and media reportage from Australasia, North America and the Joint Kingdom. These Anglophone countries clothed expressive similarities in respect to the ways obscenity is framed as a pure and/or political question major within worldwide contemplation (although there are also notable differences). Object of this apology, the overview that follows does not search for to be globally elected, but represents a preliminary foray into a complex and different field.

The scene highlighted Dines's unsound charisma and the factually that, since the expiry of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most baffling and interesting of conspicuous roles: the great's foremost anti-pornography campaigner.
