Introduction to Cheerleading
Physiotherapy in Comox for Cheerleading
Cheerleading began as a way to promote school unity and rally a team to victory; however, in the 130 years that have followed, cheerleading has developed into a highly skilled and competitive athletic event in its own right.
Modern cheerleading combines elements of gymnastics with tosses, partner stunts and pyramid building to wow the crowd. While these risky athletic elements add excitement and entertainment to cheerleading routines, they also increase the risk of injury. Ligament sprains, muscle strains, fractures, back pain and overuse injuries of the arms are the most common.
