Many back injuries will resolve themselves with rest at home and time to heal. But when those back injuries become recurrent, a new approach is essential to correct the problems causing the injury. Special rehabilitation to correct the soft tissue damage correctly will help the back heal properly and result in fewer injuries.
“Synergistic dominance” is a pattern of recurrent injuries that are caused by muscular imbalance. Muscular imbalance is a result of supporting muscles trying to take the place of major muscles. Proper rehabilitation can relieve this muscular imbalance and help alleviate long term problems.
Training programs for athletes are essential for keeping an athlete’s muscles in balance and stable, and corrective exercises are an important part of any training program. Athletes often find themselves training to build strength and power in the major muscles of the body such as the pecs, quads, and hamstrings, but do not remember to create a balanced body by working the supporting muscles such as the adductors, gluts, and pelvis basin. This imbalance can increase the risk of injury.
Young athletes who have not been trained properly can end up with injuries that can cause them to miss out on getting scholarships or professional contracts, because of a preventable injury that never healed properly. A properly balanced training program is an important part of keeping an athlete’s body healthy and performing at peak levels.
