Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio) – The season for outdoor summer sports is upon us, and one of the most popular activities is soccer.
On our latest Active Physical Therapy update, we spoke with Brooke Chapman, Physical Therapist Assistant, about how to properly prepare for getting back out on the field to avoid injuries.
Chapman talked about the importance of effective stretching and warming up to increase flexibility and range of motion when playing the strenuous game of soccer.
She also stressed having proper equipment, from correctly-fitted shoes and shin padding to the right socks to keep yourself healthy, and the the importance of making sure the surface of the field is in good shape before playing.
Chapman said that Active Physical Therapy can help identify how you may have been injured if you suspect something is wrong via their free Discovery Sessions to see what may be going on, and they can help you recover from injury as well.
