The gym often appears to be the most affordable place to begin a sport-related adventure. The trend for a slim and sculpted body attracts to the gym even those who had previously little to do with sports. These persons are those who should pay particular attention to not incurring a severe injury when they begin their training on the training equipment.
What to do if an injury occurs?
The most important thing is to not ignore the pain and stop doing the exercise. If the accident happens at the gym, it is obligatory to inform the trainer about it, and to follow the trainer’s recommendations. If the injury emerges outside the gym, we can try to treat it at home. Above all, the injured body part should be relieved with the use of an elastic band; however, it should be remembered that it cannot be too tight. It is necessary to cover the injured part with ice. It is also advisable to apply a cooling ointment, for example the Bear Ointment “Polar ice”. Natural ingredients: mint, mountain arnica, and Chinese mint will ensure an immediate sensation of cooling, and bring a fast relief to the sufferer. In cases of strains or tearing a heat therapy is advisable, because it accelerates the regeneration of damaged tissues and the return of full physical fitness. A warm, relaxing bath, and a strongly warming ointment, for example the Bear Ointment “Strong warming”, can also prove helpful. The natural ingredients included in it, i.a. camphor and devil’s claw, effectively relieve the pain and have an anti-inflammatory property.
