To reduce your risk of injury, follow these guidelines from our physical therapists:
- Warm up before exercising. Take a brisk walk and do some active stretches
- Cross-train by doing activities that use different muscles. You might ride a bicycle one day, swim the next and run the following day.
- Vary your activity level and intensity.
- Wear good-quality, supportive shoes that are right for your activity, especially if you run
- Get fitted for proper equipment.
- Take some lessons from experts for specialized sports like golf or tennis.
If you’re a weekend warrior who can’t work out regularly during the week, find ways to fit activity into your daily life. For example:
- Take a walk around a mall
- When running errands, park your car far enough away to give you a good walk to your destination
- Play Frisbee in the park with friends or your kids or grandkids
- Walk the family dog; it will benefit both of you
