As we age, our bodies simply aren’t as limber as they used to be – putting us at risk for exercise-related injuries.Properwarm-upsareagreat resource for thosewhostillwant to remainactivebutmaybeprone to injuriesoratahigher riskofdeveloping injuries. A physical therapist can help you figure out where your problem areas are, so you can perform the correct warm-up routine for your needs. A routine that consists of a combination of exercises, stretches, and pain-relieving techniques that target areas where injuries are likely to occur is one of the best ways to avoid injury in the aging and active adult. Additionally, your physical therapist can also help you target poor techniques and correct them. They will focus more on the areas of your body that are repeatedly stressed and overused by your sport or exercise, thus determining your likelihood of injury and suggesting the best warm-up techniques for keeping you safe during physical activity.
