What are some common cheerleading injuries?
Cheerleaders suffer from the same types of injuries that any athlete can get. These include ankle sprains, torn ACLs and injuries to the head and neck. (This answer provided for NATA by the California University of Pennsylvania Athletic Training Education Program.)
How does flaccid paralysis affect the body?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Flaccid paralysis can be painful, and typically the pain is centered in your arms, legs, or back. If you have this condition, you would feel extreme weakness in your limbs. It could also affect the muscles in your lungs. Flaccid paralysis is often seen after strokes (CVA’s).
What can I do for spondylolsis?
National Academy of Sports Medicine answered
If you have spondylolsis, you should perform a combination of flexibility and strengthening techniques to help your body heal and prevent further injury. Begin by foam rolling your IT-band and latissimus dorsi (lats). Foam rolling is a form of self-massage that can help relax tight muscles before you stretch them. Hold the tender spots for 30 seconds to allow your muscle time to relax and release the knots that are causing tension in the muscle. After you have completed the foam rolling, statically stretch the hip flexor complex and lats. Hold each stretch for 30 seconds to allow your muscles time to elongate. Next, perform strengthening exercises for the hips and core. This can be done by performing stability ball bridges and planks to help strengthen the muscles that stabilize the core and hips. Perform 1-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions of each of these exercises.
