HOW TO AVOID OVERTRAINING INJURIES

Overtraining is a concern for all people pursuing fitness - from recreational or elite athletes to people who exercise to lose weight and stay in shape. Overtraining injuries are musculoskeletal injuries that occur due to more activity or exercise than your body is used to, and may happen to anyone who increases intensity or changes type of activity. Overtraining syndrome includes overtraining injuries, but also encompasses general fatigue and other symptoms.

TIPS TO RECOVER FROM A WORKOUT

Proper recovery following a workout is as essential as the workout itself. Whether you are beginning to work out for the first time or are altering your regimen, proper recovery is crucial to sustaining a long-term workout plan.

Why It's Important:
During exercise, the body undergoes a controlled amount of stress. Tissues in our bodies need this stress in order to improve their function and your performance. In fact, when you exercise, your muscles actually undergo "micro-trauma" due to the imposed demand of your activity. Recovery is your chance to build yourself back up stronger than before; it is the link between short-term, immediate benefit and long-term, lasting outcome.

The following tips can help you attain maximum benefit from your workout and reduce the risk of developing an injury.  CLICK THIS LINK FOR TIPS.

PTIS SPIRIT!

To celebrate the holidays, PTIS staff and friends participated in a scavenger hunt on 16th Street mall. Ask your physical therapist about their earthquake skit, train demo, or macarena skills. You would not believe what these people are capable of doing to win!
