Impact of weather on sports and sport injuriesAuthor(s):
Dr. Vennapu Lakshmana Rao and N Vijay MohanAbstract:
The performance of participants can be reduced or improved, and some sporting world records are invalid if set under certain weather conditions. While outdoor sports are most affected, those played indoors can still be changed by adverse or helpful weather conditions. One of the most obvious weather impacts on winter athletes is tightness. Winter athletes must take extra precaution while warming up to make sure they do not incur any muscle damage. While any exercise outdoors in any climate can pose an asthma risk to even the most seasoned athletes, it’s the cold, dry area that increases the risk during the winter months. For many people with regular asthma, just stepping outside in frigid temperatures is enough to cause coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness. Most injuries occur during hot and humid conditions, cold weather conditions, and wet and rainy conditions. The injury may not be direct but caused by a weakening of the body due to the extreme weather conditions.Pages: 09-13 | 326 Views 21 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
