Summertime is in full swing, which means gardening, yard work and other labor-intensive activities around the house.
If you find yourself being nagged by injuries like aching muscles, strained ligaments, or a myriad of other complaints, it might be because you hit the ground running when the weather warmed up and hadn’t maintained your fitness level throughout the year. There is nothing more annoying than having your body send your brain signals preventing you from doing the things you really want to do.
Our Physical Therapists at GreenField Health & Rehabilitation Center in Lancaster can help you get rid of your sports-related injuries and get you back to being able to do the things you want to do. We will work with you and devise a plan to prevent these nagging injuries from becoming a part of your daily life.
It’s also important to remember that while it is common to experience some muscle soreness after exercising, you should never ignore pain. It’s the body’s way of indicating that something is wrong. If you have pain and inflammation that lasts for more than 48 hours, make it a point to see a health care professional who can help identify the source.
