What Does Warm up and Cool Down To Our Body??

 What is WARM UP?? A warm-up is a pre-exercise phase that usually consists of low- to moderate-intensity movements and activities. Its main goal is to progressively raise the body's core temperature, pulse rate, breathing rate, and blood supply to the muscles that are in use. The purpose of a warm-up is to get the body ready for more physically and psychologically taxing activities and exercise. Many exercises, including dynamic stretching, light aerobics, and sport-specific drills , are frequently used as part of a warm-up. These exercises improve brain activation, joint mobility, and muscular flexibility. A warm-up also makes it easier for oxygen to reach the muscles efficiently, which enhances energy metabolism and lowers the chance of injury. The warm-up phase facilitates the change from a state of inactivity or rest to one of physical exertion preparation. It is seen as a crucial part of any fitness programme, helping to enhance performance, reduce injuries, and promote gener

What is Compartment Syndrome?

Compartment syndrome happens when excessive pressure builds up inside the body's enclosed muscle space. Compartment syndrome is usually the result of bleeding or swelling following an injury. What is Compartment Syndrome? The hazardously high compartment syndrome pressure impedes blood flow to and from the tissues affected. It can be an emergency that requires surgery to avoid permanent injury. Behind the Muscle in Compartment Syndrome? Organ or muscle groups are organized into areas which are called compartments. The walls of these compartments are formed by strong connective tissue webs, called fascia. Blood or edema (fluid resulting from inflammation or injury) may build up in the compartment following an injury.  Fascia's tough walls can't easily expand, and compartment pressure increases, preventing adequate blood flow to tissue inside the compartment. Severe damage to tissue may result, with loss of body function or even death. The legs, arms, and abdomen are more lik

What is Muscle Contusion Or Bruise?

Athletes in contact sports have many chances of getting a muscle contusion (bruise). Contusions are second only to strains as a leading cause of injuries from sports. Most of the contusions are minor and heal fast, without taking the athlete out of the game. However, severe contusions can cause deep tissue damage and complications which may prevent an athlete from playing sports for months. What is the Difference between Muscle contusion or bruise? Contusions occur when a blunt object strikes a part of the body with a direct blow or repeated blows, crushing underlying muscle fibers and connective tissue without breaking the skin. The result of falling or jamming the body against a hard surface can be a contusion. Symptoms Swelling Pain Limitation in ROM Around injured Area Weakness in injured Muscle stiffness Sometimes Blood accumulation is present at the site of damage underlying complications like a fracture, dislocation of joint sprain torn muscle Abdominal contusion in sports cause

Does Physiotherapy weaken muscles over time?

No , The thing is that  Physiotherapy doesn't weaken your muscle over time. Muscle disease includes a number of rare conditions, which in most cases tend to present at around the same age, and due to their progressive character, they can lead to physical limitations and reduced life expectancy. So Clear answer is Physiotherapy Never Weakens Muscle. but if you are taking Physiotherapic Treatment for a longer time you may feel that your muscles are stronger and with the blank gap in between treatment may lead to feeling of weakness.

Base of Support (BOS) in Physiotherapy

The base of support means the area supported beneath the object. Whenever the base of support is more the stability will be more.  Greater the BOS lower the COG of any object. For example, the fundamental position of standing the BOS is lesser than the lying, so COG in the standing position it is in the higher level whereas in the lying posture it will be just near to the ground as a result lying posture is more stable than any other fundamental position and also it can be maintained for the longer period. The stability is directly proportional to BOS and inversely proportional to COG.
