Recovery Guide for Basketball Player

Basketball is a tough sport but it can be very rewarding. If you play basketball, then chances are you’ve had an injury at some point in your career. For example, if you’ve sprained your ankle or knee, then this article will help guide you through the recovery process so that you can get back on the court with no problems!

Cool down after a basketball game

A cool down after a basketball game is an essential part of your recovery process. It helps your muscles recover and prevents injuries, so you can play the next day. During the cool down, you should stretch by doing some gentle movements such as walking or jogging in place.

After every practice session or game, do some light exercises such as running on the spot or jumping rope while holding one end of it with both hands above your head (like a jump rope) for about 10 minutes. This will help bring down your heart rate gradually before going home!

Don’t take a shower immediately

Don’t take a shower immediately after a game. You’ll want to let your muscles relax before jumping into the shower, so wait at least 30 minutes after you finish playing.

Take a shower after your muscles are relaxed, not tense and sore. If you’re still feeling sore from yesterday’s game, it might be best to wait until later in the day when they’ve had time to calm down before hopping under the stream of hot water (and then ice).

Relax your muscle

Massage your muscles to prevent lactic acid build up. Lactic acid is a byproduct of the breakdown of glycogen and glucose, which can lead to muscle fatigue if you don’t massage it out of your muscles. You can use either your hand or a handheld massager on yourself or have someone else do it for you (if they’re willing).
