We've been taking a little look at some of the injuries that can occur when not warming up properly to train for wrestling. We've looked at feet, we've looked at knees and today we're looking at possibly one of the most important parts of your body, your head.
Yes, the head is a wondrous place, it contains the brain, which thinks, it moves our limbs, it senses and it keep balance, all very important elements in the sport of wrestling.
Although when grappling and making basic moves, most wrestlers avoid the head area all together, but there can be points in a match where your opponent hits the mat with force, or can knock heads with one another.
Knocks to the head, in basic terms can cause a bit of pain or a headache, any harder, you could be looking at a migraine or concussion, further than that you can find contusions on the brain and some damage, which can put people out for weeks as it causes dizziness and nausea.
So, how do we prevent these kind of injuries? One point is to be totally observant during the matches and the best way to prevent you clanging heads, it to wear protective gear. Not only will this cover the head and ears, but you can invest in mouth guards to protect your teeth.
Some may feel awkward wearing head protection, but at the end of the day, if you are at a level where you are finding your matches very energetic, it is always advisable to wear protective gear, across all the important parts of the body, including your head and your joints.
