Braces & Supports
Tips to help you stay active and preventing injury*:
A good start to the day:
Enjoy a morning routine that includes a healthy breakfast, to help ensure your body has enough energy to sustain you during physical activities.
Go at your own pace:
Walk or run on a local path close to your home, but set your own pace and keep an eye on your energy levels. Feel tired or feel light headed, take a break to help reduce the risk of injury.
Stretch it out:
Find some time in your day to stretch and help keep your muscles, joints and tendons responsive. Maybe that is while you are watching your favourite TV program, or first thing in the morning.
Before you start a new sport or physical activity, make sure you learn how to play it properly. Learning the rules, techniques and appropriate behaviours for a certain sport or activity can help you avoid unnecessary injuries.1
