Dr. Ryan DeBell’s 30 Day Movement Challenge: A Novel Approach to Improving Functional Movement in Athletes
One of the most common ways athletes end up with training injuries is by performing repetitive movements with poor loading mechanisms. In other words, they will frequently load their tendons, ligaments, or joints inefficiently, often while attempting to improve their game by training. Inevitably, if you have participated at any level of organized competitive sports, there’s a good chance you can sympathize with someone who “strained their back” performing a deadlift during the football off-season, or a runner who has sharp lateral knee pain, but only when running. These types of injuries are especially prevalent at the high school level. Recent observational studies have identified that nearly half of youth sports injuries occur due to overuse, some of which is a product of poor loading mechanisms.
So how can we, as non-professional athletes, find a way to avoid these injuries without a team of costly, highly qualified professional trainers and therapists at our disposal?
