As the weather gets chillier, it’s tempting to forgo physical exercise for a Netflix marathon on the couch. Thankfully, fair-weather athletes can stay active during the winter months (and all year long) by playing indoor sports like soccer, basketball, racquetball, and volleyball — as long as they take care to avoid sports injuries.
Sports physiotherapy incorporates many techniques to ensure a sports injury heals correctly. Rehabilitating a sports injury requires careful consideration of the athlete and the type of sport, so sports physiotherapy is always customized to each athlete.
The leaves are falling, kids are back in school and you’re coming down from a non-stop, action-packed summer. Don’t let the frigid first days of fall stop you from staying active. It is a great excuse to create (or maintain) a running routine, which will keep you warm and healthy well into the autumn season.
We have put together something a bit different this month to inspire you to go out for a run. We have chosen our favourite running route in each of the areas we serve: St. Albert, Barrhead, Westlock, Gibbons and Morinville. Additionally, we created a fun, upbeat playlist for you.
Before you shell out a couple thousand dollars on a new set of clubs, consider working on your core stability for a better return on investment. The core area is oftentimes the weakest part of a golfer’s body. Without strong, engaged muscles in your mid-region, (stomach, hips, butt and lower back), you cannot execute a swing that is powerful and technically sound. Stability in your stance is essential for a good driving technique. With good core stability, you can wind your body to generate the force necessary for distance, without losing the alignment necessary for accuracy. These five stability exercises will help you improve your golf game.
