Preventing Sprains and Strains

 

There are many things people can do to help lower their risk of sprains and strains:

  • Avoid exercising or playing sports when tired or in pain.

  • Maintain a healthy, well-balanced diet to keep muscles strong.

  • Maintain a healthy weight.

  • Practice safety measures to help prevent falls (for example, keep stairways, walkways, yards, and driveways free of clutter; anchor scatter rugs; and salt or sand icy patches in the winter).

  • Wear shoes that fit properly.

  • Replace athletic shoes as soon as the tread wears out or the heel wears down on one side.

  • Do stretching exercises daily.

  • Be in proper physical condition to play a sport.

  • Warm up and stretch before participating in any sports or exercise.

  • Wear protective equipment when playing.

  • Run on even surfaces.
