Focus on dynamic stretches over static stretches.
Ensure the stretches you select work the joints you plan on using the most.
Wear The Right Gear
Participation in outdoor activities can reach an all-time high during the summer months. If you’re one of the many who will spend as much time as possible outside this summer, wearing the right gear will help keep you protected. Examples of what you should always consider wearing include:
- Well-fitting running shoes when you’ll be jogging often.
- Cleats when playing a sport that takes place on dirt or grass.
- Helmets, elbow pads, and knee pads when riding a bike, roller skating, or skateboarding.
