Health Tip: Avoiding Overuse Injury
Vary your exercise routine
(HealthDay News) -- Doing the same exercises day after day can lead to overuse injury.
To avoid this, the Mayo Clinic suggests:
- Engage in a variety of exercises, rather than sticking to the same routine.
- Don't do too much in one day. It's better to get some light exercise daily, rather than cramming too much into a single session.
- Always warm up before and cool down after a workout.
- Wear shoes appropriate for the activity you are doing, and practice proper technique and form.
