How to Protect Your Achilles Tendon (new podcast)

Having a healthy body prepares the stage for your everyday well- being.

It also has a direct impact on how fast and fine you will age. Maintaining your strength and robustness via good nutrition and lots of exercise promotes good blood circulation, digestion, and bone strength.

Exercise allows you to live an active, stress-free life.

With plenty of exercise, you will be able to develop a strong immune system, something that people need to prevent diseases, chronic and serious.

Based on studies made by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, a person who exercises regularly shows greater mental alertness and reduced attacks of certain diseases.

When your metabolism is working at its peak, you are able to burn more calories which your body uses for energy. This would also result in lesser aches and pains. The body needs lots of vitamins, dietary fiber, minerals, carbohydrates, and fatty acids in order to allow all body processes to function properly. Regular night bed rest is also necessary.

When you sleep, the body goes into work and repairs damaged cells. Deficiency in sleep, good nutrition, and exercise can deny the body of essential elements that will result in fatigue and stress.

The national Sleep Foundation says that ample sleep makes you less vulnerable to colds and flu. Getting enough exercise and the right kind of food can leave a person physically and mentally sharp. Constant workouts prepare the different parts of the body like the muscles, heart, lungs, and bones for the demands of daily life.

When the body reaches a healthy level and stays on that plateau, it would be able to withstand extraordinary stress and it would les likely give in to simple infections and other common diseases. When you do regular exercise such as aerobics, you effectively toughen your muscles and bones and this helps you avoid sprains, bone fractures, and even pulled muscles.

One great way to do that when your gym isn’t accessible or if you don’t have equipment at home is by running.

But one area of the body that gets impacted by the ‘impact’ of running can be the Achilles Tendon.

Join the doctor team at Head 2 Toe to discuss how you can prevent injury, what signs you should be looking for that could signal somethings wrong, and how to treat your Achilles if it needs help.
