Gymnastics is a strict sport that requires long hours of practice and complex body movements. In addition to the weight pressure applied to the upper body in many gymnastics movements, numerous twists, flips, and landings put gymnasts at risk of injury.
Some of the more common upper body injuries include excessive use of tendons that support the shoulder, dislocated elbows, cartilage injuries, and gymnasts' wrists (growth plate inflammation).
Fractures, sprains, and pulls are common in the lower body, most commonly affecting the knees and ankles. The bends and twists required in many gymnastics can lead to lower back injuries, including stress fractures. There are several strategies that can help prevent gymnastics injuries from being observed by vigilance to properly maintain the equipment.
Warm-up and stretch. Always take the time to warm up and stretch. Studies have shown that cold muscles are more likely to be injured. A five-minute warm-up at the gym may include jogging around the mat, as well as some passing by lifting your knees, kicking your buttocks, jumping, and jumping. A good gymnastic stretch should include neck and back, shoulders, forearms, and wrists, hips, thighs and calf muscles, ankles, and feet. Be sure to stretch slowly and gently, holding each stretch for 30 seconds. The warm-up and stretching time at the beginning of the exercise may take approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
Cool down and stretch. Stretching at the end of practice or competition is too often neglected because of busy schedules. Stretching can help reduce muscle soreness and keep muscles long and flexible. Be sure to stretch after each training practice to reduce your risk for injury.
