Injury prevention

Injury prevention

Your nutrition can play a large role in not only injury prevention, but also their recovery.

Meeting your energy requirements and ensuring that you don’t fall into a state of low energy availability is important to maintain healthy and strong bones. Failing to meet your energy requirements due to restriction or unintentionally meeting a state of low energy availability affects bone health and increases the risk of bone injuries such as stress fractures.

Who is at risk of low bone mineral density?

  • Adolescents who require extra energy to support their growth and development
  • Athletes participating in sports where low body weight and aesthetics are important, for example running, gymnastics, boxing and sports where body weight supported (e.g cycling, rowing, swimming, horse racing)
  • Female athletes with irregular or stopping of the menstrual cycle

Besides consuming sufficient energy for your sport, there are also specific nutrients that athletes and active people need to be aware of to support the growth and maintenance of healthy bones.
