How to avoid Spine, Joint or Spoerts Injuires?
Sports injuries are common in Malaysia. We have seen a fair share of injured weekend warriors as well as injured professional athletes. In almost all cases, injuries were due to exhaustion resulting from electrolyte imbalance that could have easily been prevented. To help Malaysia’s live a healthy, active life; this Chiropractic-in-Malaysia article will shine a light on how you can prevent sports injuries in Malaysia.
In Malaysia, heat exhaustion is the leading cause of most sports injuries. Heat exhaustion is a faint-like collapse after exercise that results from low blood pressure. The best means of avoidance is proper hydration with electrolyte infused drinks such as 100plus or Gatorade. Adequate hydration is essential in keeping up with the nutritional demands of your body. But, most important is to avoid clear liquids such as distilled water or even some of those bottled waters. Drinking water may not be enough, so don’t just look to quenching that thirst, go for liquids with maximum power.
Another critical point to remember is that alcohol and sports don’t mix. Far too often, we see people drinking beer in golf, tennis, or other sports. Keep alcohol away from any sport or outdoor activities. It is better for you and your friends. Additionally, it might even be better if you avoid drinking alcoholic beverages the night before a sporting event. Alcohol wipes out all the electrolytes in your system. You may not feel the impact right away, but you could very quickly end with a serious life-threatening health issue on the field the day you play. Play safe and alcohol-free.
However, if you happen to fall victim to heatstroke or heat exhaustion, there are things you can do to make you feel better and even avoid dangerous life-threatening situations. Heat exhaustion athletes can recover rapidly on lying down with leg raised to improve blood pressure. Heatstroke victims collapse during exercise due to impaired body temperature control. Heatstroke is potentially fatal if immediate first aid to lower body temperature is not provided.
