EXERCISES TO CURE SPORTS INJURIES
There are some exercises that can relieve you of your pain due to a sports injury. These exercises are to be performed only when you have a medical “all-clear”. The exercises are as follows:
- Tight sore hamstrings: You might get a tight sore hamstring while running. The solution to tight sore hamstrings is bicycle leg swing. How? Just stand on your right leg and bring your left knee up to the waist level with the knee bent. Then straighten your left leg and bring it down to the floor. When your leg cannot go higher while straight without you bending forward, flex your knee as if you were kicking your butt. If you are not able to balance on one leg, you can put your hand on a wall or on a sturdy object.
- ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) Tears: If you participate in football or basketball you might face an ACL tear. You might require a surgery to get back your knee to normal. However you can practice a single-leg lateral hop exercise if the pain doesn’t require a surgery. For a single-leg lateral hop exercise, you need to stand to the side of a cone or hurdle. Then to get into the start position, stand on one leg with your knee slightly bent. Now execute a counter jump to hop sideways over the cone. Land on your jumping leg and repeat this many times. Repeat the same on your other leg.
- Achilles Tendinitis: You might get an Achilles tendinitis if you are a walker, athlete or basketball player. You can practice Balance and eccentric reach with toes to get relief from achilles tendinitis. To work on your right achilles tendon, stand a few feet away from the wall. Then lift your left leg and while bending your right knee, allow the toes of your left foot to touch the wall. Then while bending your right knee, try to move your left foot towards the right side. This time the toes of your left foot might not touch the wall. Then do the same thing this time to the left. Practice this on your left foot. Repeat this in 3 sets each containing 20 counts.
