Strains Prevention

Prevention

To reduce your chance of straining a muscle:

  • Keep your muscles strong so they can absorb the energy of sudden stressful activities.
  • After a short warm-up period, stretch out tight muscles, especially previously injured ones.
  • Learn the proper technique for athletic activities. This will decrease muscle stress.
  • Stop when you are tired. Tired muscles do not function well. They do not react properly to sudden stress.
