Another lecture from the series of interdisciplinary speeches combining orthopaedics and other fields of medicine, This time, Dr. Robert Śmigielski was speaking at the 21st Congress of Aesthetic Dermatology and Anti-Ageing Medicine. During the lecture he has focused on the importance of physical activity for both physical as well as mental health but highlighting the fact that not every discipline is made for everyone.
Sport – good for health?
Yes, provided we exercise common sense and adapt the level of effort to our capabilities, but also… predispositions. Yes! It’s true. Not every discipline is safe for everyone. The qualities of tissues encoded in our genes, our individual metabolic rate and a whole host of other valuable information predispose us to specific activities. If we know what can harm us, then we can effectively avoid it or work out training programmes supporting the prevention of injuries so that the physical activity brings more benefits than carries potential threats. The analysis of genetic tests has the potential to provide us with information about what activities and loads to avoid in order to go through life healthy and in good shape. Until we hit 100!
Let’s be active, but let’s do it wisely!
