This book is a practical guide for wrestlers. Wrestling is a tough activity, in which injury is an ever-present danger. Learning good technique and systematically strengthening the body are the best ways to prevent injury during sparring. The book explains the safety preparation every wrestler should use, including mental training, strength exercises, and flexibility routines. The book also looks at how to treat common injuries sustained in the ring. Injuries covered include sprains and strains, whiplash, dislocations, fractures, and back injuries. You'll learn when you can treat the injury yourself, and when you should see a doctor. Self-treatments are explained clearly, and are designed to return you to training safely and quickly. This book gives expert advice on dealing with the following issues: • Improving flexibility to protect muscles from injury. • Avoiding the skin diseases common among wrestlers. • Rehabilitation exercises for an injured back. • The importance of good nutrition. • The dangers of performance-enhancing drugs.
