As eSports are rising in popularity, so are injuries and claims related to playing these games. It is said that eSports are just as competitive and can cause just as serious sports injuries as its physical counterpart.
Main types of injuries are usually related to the muscles, spine and of course blood circulation. Sitting for long periods of time can take its toll, as can the use of incorrect equipment and faulty video games.
In this post, we take a look at how you can prevent developing serious eSports injuries and avoid having to claim from video game companies altogether. Let’s get started!
Whether you are going out on the field or hitting your console, stretching is an integral part of preventing injuries and improving your blood circulation too. Be sure to stretch before and after your eSports gaming session every day.
Needless to say, you’ll need the proper equipment to ensure your body is comfortable and that your muscles and limbs aren’t compromised. Whatever seating you invest in, be sure to check that it has adjustable armrests to ensure a comfortable and injury-free eSports session.
Practice Good Posture
While playing eSports, you will be sitting for an extended period of time. Slumping can cause irreparable damage to your spine, so having good posture is essential in preventing intense back pain and other future back issues.
Buy Proper Seating
You need to invest in a proper seat to ensure your body has the support it needs for those long gaming sessions. A soft and comfy couch may feel good, but it can be detrimental to your health. Buy seating that provides the right kind of support for your gaming activities.
