Exercise Injury Risks 

Though regular exercise provides tremendous health benefits, it's important to consider injury risks before beginning a training program. Your genetics influence how our tendons, ligaments, and joints are structured. These differences can produce unique joint or muscular vulnerabilities.

Genetics can also influence how much discomfort you experience both during and after exercise — increasing muscle cramps and soreness or slowing muscle repair. Awareness of your unique risks can help you protect yourself from injury when implementing an exercise program.

Explore how your genetic variations may influence your injury risk, recovery time, and discomfort during exercise.

Exercise Injury Risks

 

Exercise Injury Risks are categorized into four groups:

Muscle Injury

 

Muscles

This group includes four important traits about your muscles.

  • Muscle Damage Risk : We will show you if you have a special genetic trend for having more risk for muscle micro- trauma and damage.
  • Muscle Soreness: Some people have the aptitude for particular gene expression during certain exercises such as weight training or eccentric workouts that predispose them to more muscle soreness. We will tell you if you probably have such a trait in your genetic profile.
  • Muscle Cramping: do you experience muscle cramps more frequently than average? We will help you to understand if your genetic variation may influence this tendency.
  • Muscle Repair (Slow Muscle Repair): After weight training workouts, microscopic muscle damage may occur and this trait identifies the speed of repair.

Joints

Though regular exercise provides tremendous health benefits, it's important to consider injury risks before beginning a training program. Your genetics influence how our tendons, ligaments, and joints are structured. These differences can produce unique joint or muscular vulnerabilities. Genetics can also influence how much discomfort you experience both during and after exercise — increasing muscle cramps and soreness or slowing muscle repair. Awareness of your unique risks can help you protect yourself from injury when implementing an exercise program.

Explore how your genetic variations may influence your injury risk, recovery time, and discomfort during exercise.

 

Tendons & Ligaments 

This group covers 3 important traits: Achilles Tendinopathy, Overall Tendon and Anterior Cruciate Ligament Rupture. 

The Achilles tendon is a strong tendon that connects the calf muscles to your heel bone. Anterior Cruciate Ligament Rupture is a very common injury in sports that involve sudden pivoting, jumping and landing such as basketball, soccer and handball.

Your genetic predispositions to these injuries will be assessed in this group.

Bones and Stress Fracture

Stress Fracture: usually caused by repetitive force, and  overuse condition in sports such as long distance running.  Stress fractures can also happen with normal activity but with osteoporosis condition. Understanding of your genetic predisposition to stress fracture can help you to adjust your exercise load and optimize your bone health care.
