Our joints are responsible for our body’s movement and stability. Its normal function is to move throughout its specialized range of motion including flexion, extension, abduction and adduction. But there are some unexpected scenarios that we do everyday, which cause damage to our joints and, with time, will make us less able to carry out our normal activities.
Doctors are highly trained in assessing and evaluating how a normal joint should look. An auto accident doctor, in particular, helps patients who suffer from accident injuries. They specialize in providing a complete care a patient needs after an accident.
However, before any joint issues occur, there are things you should AVOID to prevent accident injuries or even joint pains from happening.
Pain is a warning signal our body sends to us so that we can stop putting more tension or pressure on that particular joint or area. Most injuries occur as joint damage, such as, sprains, ligament tearing and strains.
If you experience pain especially in your joints, make sure to have a medical professional check it out. This is because when you condict daily exercise, while in pain, it may result in permanent damage.
There are some things we do everyday that are repetitive, such as, cycling or scrolling through a computer, with the use of a mouse, for several hours everyday. Doing these activities can cause repetitive stress injuries. But these can be avoided by trying new things, such as, cross training, or trying to shake your hands after two hours of scrolling.
People can get injured by simply moving around or carrying things that are too heavy for them. Further study shows that more than half of work related injuries in the health and community services sector are due to lifting, pushing, pulling carrying, holding or restraining people or objects.
Always remember that there is a proper way of carrying an object: bend your knees rather than bending your back.
It is important to do a thorough warm up before performing a heavy work out or a routine exercise training. If the muscles around the joint do not produce blood flow, they become tight and stiff and will be more prone to some injuries.
According to our Largo personal injury doctor, heavy weight training doesn’t wear the joints, but an extreme workout, like, running on a bumpy surface for an extended period of time can cause an injury to the knees and joints.
Keep in mind to always be careful with everything you do to avoid accidents from happening. It is always best to consult a professional when experiencing joint pain, or other accident related injury, to receive the proper care you need.
