    Tips for Preventing Sports Injuries

    Many sports-related injuries can be prevented with these simple tips:

    • Warm up your muscles before you start your main activity. Marching or jogging in place and dynamic stretching will loosen your muscles and prepare them for more intense work
    • Stretch after your workout to help improve flexibility and range of motion, as well as reduce post-exercise muscle soreness.
    • Include at least a day of rest in your workout routine. This will give your muscles time to rebuild and your body time to replenish its energy stores.
    • Wear the appropriate gear and equipment to protect yourself during your activity. Helmets are a must for cycling, skating and downhill skiing. Make sure you and your little athletes have the proper pads (ankle, knee, wrist) for specific sports. For runners and hikers, good shoes and socks can help prevent ankle injuries, stress fractures and blisters.
    • Drink plenty of water before and after you exercise (and during, if you’re able). Proper hydration replaces the fluids you lose through perspiration, helps regulate your body temperature and keeps your joints lubricated.
