Prevalence Injuries in Youth Sports 

Youth sports provide a unique opportunity for kids to develop and grow in a fun and competitive environment.  Recent literature indicates that youth athletics are correlated with increased physical activity, improved school outcomes and decreased usage of drugs and alcohol.  With an estimated 30 million American youths participating in organized sports, it is important to consider the consequent increased risk for injuries in this population.  In the words of our Functional Movement Trainer, Matt Florentine; “We build injury prevention into the strength and conditioning programming.  This helps our athletes to increase performance while minimizing the risk of injury due to overuse or over-training an unstable joint.”

TOP 5 Health Tips of the Season

  1. Supplement with vitamin D - An estimated 42% of the US population is vitamin D deficient. This number is expected to be higher in the midwest due to the decreased amount of sunlight starting this time of year.

  2. Get outside - The days are getting shorter, but there is still time to reap the benefits of being outside.  According to Newport Academy, time outdoors has been shown to decrease levels of stress and is a helpful intervention for people dealing with anxiety.

  3. Choose to eat fresh produce - Fall is that wonderful time of year where many fruits and vegetables can be enjoyed just after being harvested. Look for the following foods, which are in peak harvest starting in fall; apples, brussel sprouts, parsnips, pears, rutabaga, cauliflower, squash, pumpkin, pomegranate, and tangerines.

  4. Meditate - The holidays are stressful!  Take some time for yourself. As little as 10 minutes of meditation per day has been shown to control stress, decrease anxiety, improve cardiovascular health, and achieve a greater capacity for relaxation.

  5. Embrace the cold - Winter is coming and a positive mind-set can go a long way.  Maintaining an active lifestyle into the fall months can help ward off cabin-fever.  

Pilates

Pilates is a mind-body approach to exercise which has proven over the years to be beneficial to people of all walks of life. From elite athletes to those aspiring to simply improve their health, Pilates can help!  Core stability, muscle control, breathing, flexibility, posture and strength are key components ingrained in Pilates philosophy. Recent research has demonstrated a myriad of benefits associated with a well-instructed Pilates program.  Physically, Pilates has been shown to build muscular strength and endurance, increase mobility and flexibility and improve body composition. Functionally, research indicates improved balance, increased bone mineral density, and a cognitive boost following a Pilates regimen. Therapeutic effects have also been noted in special populations such as people with Multiple Sclerosis, fibromyalgia, breast cancer and osteoarthritis. If you are looking to move better, with more purpose, Pilates may be the solution for you.
