For those who compete in competitive or recreational motorsports, there is nothing more exhilarating than side by side racing, hitting top speed on the front straight or perfecting the double jump. These tasks often require a degree of mental fortitude, quick reaction times and a significant amount of physical fitness. Unfortunately, even when well-trained, the adrenaline rush associated with motorsports may lead to minor or even serious injury.
Many minor injuries experienced by those involved in motorsports are easily treatable and even preventable with the right training. Although many individuals in the racing industry complain of generalized aches and pains, it does not have to be that way.
