boxing-injury-physiotherapistBoxing is an incredible sport and activity to get you in the best shape of your life! You move constantly while exercising you arms through various punching, thrusting and blocking moves. You also work your back and shoulders with these movements and work your abdominal muscles while clenching your stomach throughout these exercises.  Additionally,  you work your legs and butt when you kick and swivel from side to side.

There are a plethora of upsides to exercising through boxing but the routines and exercises can be very vigorous and strenuous on your muscles. Additionally, you may become prone to muscle injury if you get injured in a fight. Or, you might strain your muscles if you do not do the appropriate stretches and yoga exercises to prepare prior to the fight or the training session.  Boxing is only a sport for those who are well-trained and prepared and you should never fight against someone who is in a higher level than you are in. However, in the event you do suffer from an injury, you should seek therapy from a physiotherapist. They are certified and trained to be able to help you go through a variety of strength building exercises and routines to help you get past an injury.  If the problem is recent, you should immediately call for a physiotherapist who can instantly assess your situation and begin developing a series of exercises you can start to do to help you get past any injury you may have.  Physiotherapists are trained not only help you with current injuries but ensure that you are not at risk for potential re-injury. It’s commonly known in the therapy world that those who suffer an injury are at risk to develop another injury in the same place the next time they perform the same sport or activity that they initially did to injure themselves. Therefore, it is essential to take extra precaution to avoid this from happening again and to make sure your muscles are strong and flexible.

Available Treatments Available for Injury Prevention:

Trained professionals will first assess your injury and then prepare a specialized plan for you to help you through the process of rehabilitation. First, the therapist will help you by slowly building up your strength on the injured muscle at the same time ensuring that it heals correctly.  The patient may need a more serious form of treatment such as a soft tissue treatment to help rebuild muscle or even a technique using acupuncture to help reduce muscle inflammation and pain and promote healing.

Whatever technique is best for you will be used by the highly trained professional and it is imperative to seek advice or a consultation immediately after suffering such an injury.
