After the blistering nip of the winter and before the smoldering heat of the summer, spring days are inviting, invigorating and ideal for outdoor activities. If there is ever a time to loosen up and exert energy while burning calories and toning your muscles, the spring season is the one.
While you exert yourself and push your body, remember to prepare your muscles to avoid injury. Take advantage of a therapeutic massage by Dr. Ron Safko of Safko Chiropractic and Massage to best care for your body this spring. Dr. Safko offers these tips to prevent injuries while being active.
Do your research to find a quality massage therapist. It's the first step athletes and those expanding their physical activity should take. Through therapeutic massages, Dr.Safko can condition the body by strengthening atrophied, weakened or tightened muscles while softening overused muscles.
With years of experience, Dr. Safko understands how each muscle in the body functions. He points out that massage therapy also offers increased joint flexibility and stimulated blood flow to increase the overall circulation of blood throughout your body's internal organs and skin. These improvements help reduce spasms and cramps and train the body to handle physical strain.
In addition to massage therapy, Dr. Safko recommends a good warm-up and stretch before physical activities. Continued stretching during physical exertion can also prevent pulled muscles and injuries.
Lastly, never overwork your body to the point of pain. Chiropractors will use massage therapy to condition your body to handle exercises and workouts to make your workouts less overwhelming.
