Strength Training and Conditioning

Whether recovering from injury or wanting to enhance your fitness lifestyle, strength training and conditioning can provide significant health benefits such as, stamina, endurance and overall muscular tone.

Strength Training progressively increases the output force of the muscle through weight incrementally along with exercises that target specific muscular groups. And it uses resistance to induce muscular contraction.

Conditioning is a consistent regimen of exercise, diet, and rest. A proper conditioning program has multiple components, including strength, speed, balance, agility, coordination, power and endurance.

When done correctly, both Strength Training combined with Conditioning you will notice:

• Improved joint functions
• Reduction of potential injuries in muscle, tendons and ligaments.
• Increased bone density
• Increased metabolism
• Improved cardiac functions
• Improved lipid profiles

TheraSport Physical Therapy – Soccer

SportsInjurySpotMar.jpg

The Soccer season is in full swing, and with such a dynamic sport many injuries can occur without proper stretching or injury prevention activities. Soccer injury prevention consists of strengthening and conditioning for optimal physical performance while on the pitch. Most soccer training sessions have well-designed practice plans for skills and tactics, with a solid warm-up before play. A healthier team with fewer injuries comes from a well prepared fitness plan and training schedule.

Most time loss injuries in soccer are due to ligament injuries (to the ankle and knee) In a high energy fast-paced soccer match, ligament injuries are very common. In lower levels of play, injuries that lead to the most concern, especially amongst middle and high school areas of play knee injuries, specifically to the anterior cruciate ligament.

Some Common Soccer Injuries Include:

Hip Flexor Strains:

Common in the soccer population due to the kicking involved, strains occur when a muscle is overstretched causing tearing in the muscle. Therapy is an excellent way to decrease swelling and increase flexibility, strength, returning the individual to playing soccer.

Patello Femoral Syndrome:

A more common problem in female soccer players, it involves poor tracking of your patella in the femoral groove. Therapy helps to re-align the patella and decrease pain in the knee joint

MCL/ACL Tear:

Soccer players often injure the ligaments in the knee due to the cutting and pivoting required in the sport. The medial collateral ligament and anterior cruciate ligament are two of the four major knee ligaments. Following a tear of one or more of these ligaments, treatment varies from therapy to surgical reconstruction.

Ankle Sprain:

Common in Soccer players, it involves over stretching of the ligaments that stabilize the ankle joint. This injury responds well to a therapy program that is designed to increase strength, flexibility, and propricopetion in the ankle joint.
