Can Muscle Weakness Put You At Higher Risk For Injury?
Have you ever injured a muscle or area on one side of the body and
within no time the joint and tissues below, above, or even on the
opposite side of the injury start having issues?
Our bodies compensate for muscle and joint weakness by recruiting
muscles close to or opposite to the injury in order to maintain balance
Simply put, muscle imbalances occur when one muscle is stronger
than its opposing muscle.
For example, many of us who sit at the computer all day and do little
exercise often have weak abdominal muscles and low back muscles
that are working extra hard to support our posture. The muscle
imbalances experienced in this example often put us at risk for low
Our bodies want to be balanced. They function best when everything
– muscles, tendons, bones – are equally healthy and strong. When we
make a movement, every muscle has to pitch in and do what it can. If
a single muscle falters, the others have to pick up the slack, and over
time, you are at greater risk of pain and injury.
Massage Therapy addresses all aspects of an injury including areas
of imbalance. Massage can help you better understand your body’s
strengths and weaknesses and put you on the right path to achieving overall body balance.
