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.
