After effects from University Orthopedics sponsors of Coast Kidz N' Family
1. When you’re working out, mix it up a little. Mixing aerobic activities or weight training into your workout schedule breaks up the monotony, helps your body to overcome those plateaus, and can even prevent running injuries.
2. When it comes to back, hip, knee and ankle pain, maintaining your ideal body weight goes a long way. You’ll reduce wear and tear on your joints and make it a whole lot easier to keep leading that active lifestyle..
3. If you’re training for a race or an event, consider seeing your physician for a pre-competition physical, especially if you haven’t had one in the past year. It’s the best way to get started, and keep going, injury-free.
So what are you after?
With nine specialties from back and shoulder surgery to sports medicine and pediatrics,
