Mission

To provide professional certified attention to the athlete or individual who is injured in a sports situation, as well as promote professional training in a multi interdisciplinary context, always providing attention with quality and warmth.

Vision

To become a reference point, in an international and national level, regarding attention to a person who has been injured in a sports situation, through continuous training in global scientific techniques and developments, respecting diversity of opinions that are backed by science.

Our Medical Staff
  • Orthopedic and Joint Surgery Doctor
  • Rehabilitation and Sports Doctor
  • Physiotherapists
  • Athletic Trainer
  • Nutritionist
  • Nurses
Continuous Improvement

In line with the continuous improvement philosophy established by the university, and for the first time in UDLAP history, there is an Integral Rehabilitation Center (CIR), where medical attention in orthopedics, joint surgery, sports medicine, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, nutrition and fitness is provided, backed by the latest scientific and technological advancements. UDLAP is at the vanguard, with quality services that are focused and involved, so that its students, professors and administrative personnel have the best services.

We reiterate that our goal is to have a healthy community, which is the reason why we’re promoting a prevention culture.

Facilities

In an effort to provide quality attention to the members of the cultural and sports representative teams, Universidad de las Américas Puebla built the Integral Rehabilitation Center, the only clinic of its type in a private university, which also meets the regulations and requirements of the Secretary of Health.

Tips to avoid injury

Post-Exercise Cold Application
Applying cold after intense workouts is very common among athletes.  Recently, the results of a study (Yamane M., et. al., Internal Journal of Sports Medicine, March 2015) were published which had as an objective to study the effects of regularly applying cold after workouts over muscular and vascular adaptations induced by moderate strength training. The results showed that the thickness of the muscles increased significantly in both groups after training, but this increase was significantly lower in the group that used post-exercise cold.  The maximum strength and the diameter of the brachial-artery did not increase in the cold group, while it did in the control group.  Resistance strength increased with training in both groups, but the cold group had a tendency to be lower.  The authors suggest that regular cold applications may attenuate the muscular and vascular adaptations to strength training.

As in different interventions with relation to exercise and its adaptations, the application of cold cannot and must not be universally applied, or even in the same doses.  Knowing how, in which discipline, for how long, at what temperature and how frequently to apply cold to muscle groups after training is key to increasing the effects of training and not to hinder them. (JL Chicharro).

Stretching before Physical Activity: 5 reasons not to do it

  1. Decreases strength. According to a study published by The Journal of Strength Conditioning and Investigation, stretching before a weight lifting session decreases strength levels.  A review of 104 previous studies carried out by Zagreb University (in Croatia) concludes that static stretching before exercise may decrease the stretched muscles performance by 5%.
  2. Has a negative effect on general capacity. Not only the maximum strength is negatively affected by pre-workout stretches, but capacity (explosive force, in relation to weight, fundamental in sports team, racquetball or opposition) can also decrease over 2% according to the Croatian scientists.
  3. Affects muscular resistance. The benefit of pre-workout stretches is not clear in resistance sports, such as running and biking, in which muscular contractions benefit speed.  The authors of the study attest that stretching before the activity decreases the muscle's capacity to store energy, which is key to performance in these sports.
  4. Does not significantly decrease risk of injury. Static stretching does exactly what is expected: it relaxes muscles and tendons. The risk of muscle tear is minor, since muscles are more elastic, but the possibility of joint or ligament injury increases, since our reactions are slower after this type of stretching. 
  5. Runs the risk of injury before training. If you stretch as a way to warm-up, your muscles are subjected while cold to intense stretching, which may cause muscle tear… without even having started your workout.

Don't do static and maintained stretches before training. It is better to warm-up with light activity (running in place, bicycle) and afterwards do wide warm-up movements that are dynamic stretches: lunges, jumps, etc.  Save static stretching for specific sessions that improve flexibility.
