What Effects Do Cheer and Tumbling Have on a Person?

Effects from Cheer and Tumbling

I’m going to tell you what effects cheer and tumbling have on a person once they have joined a team or a class. Cheer and tumbling can be very intense at first to a person that hasn’t done anything of this sort before. One of the most minor effects it has on a person is a sore muscles. Eventually you will not get sore muscles anymore because your body will be use to it. Once you have been tumbling for awhile you need to have been stretching. If you haven’t stretched you will be more prone to pull muscles. These are the most minor effects cheer and tumbling can have on you.

Some more intense effects include wrist and back problems. This is something I’ve personally experienced. Back problems just come with the sport for most people. I know of multiple people that have had to go to the chiropractor because of this. If you really truly love the sport its worth the pain. Wrist problems mainly come from the impact of landing on them. This can be helped by making sure you stretch your wrists before tumbling.

There are so many different effects cheer and tumbling can have on a person and its different for everyone but these are some of the most common. While involved in this sport you need to continuously be stretching. There are also some things that you can’t control when it comes to this sport. If you happen to sprain or break anything the recovery from that may not be what you want it to be. Breaks and sprains could mean problems even after you have healed from an injury. After this type of thing you need to make sure your fully recovered so you don’t re-injure yourself.

Risks of Cheer and Tumbling

As a bonus, I’m going to tell you about the risks of tumbling:

  • broken bones
  • sprains
  • dislocation
  • pulled muscles
  • tweaked back and neck

These are just some of the few risks that go right along with the effects. There is always going to be some type of effect on you after or during an injury. I’ve said this multiple times before but you need to stretch!! It will help you come back from these injury quicker if you’ve been stretching throughout it as much as you can. You need to be cautious of this happening but you can’t be too stressed about if it’s going to happen or you won’t be confident enough to do the skill required. Which not being confident is one of the reasons people get injured because they back out half way through the skill.

How Do You Feel About The Sport Now?

This is probably a lot to take in and your probably thinking there’s no way you are going to do this or your not going to let anyone do this. I know this can be scary but it comes with the sport. As a matter a fact it comes with every sport that your child plays. The only difference is there is a bigger potential to get injured from this sport than lots of others. This is the price a lot of athletes pay for loving the sport they play. If you honestly and truly love the sport everything will be worth it. Even though it might not seem like it now it’s worth it in the end.

There are so many benefits to this sport that it is worth it. You get so much exercise and it will benefit you so much. Also, if you are on a cheer or tumbling team you form friendships with the people on the team. Which that can last forever and you will always have those memories. You will never be able to replace the great memories from this sport. I personally can tell you from experience this is one of the greatest things you can do. Being apart of the team is so great especially in this sport. This maybe an intense and risky sport but in the end you will be grateful.

Its all up to you now. I really hope this helped you make a decision on whether or not to participate in this sport!
