Return to Exercise Safely After a Hiatus

When starting or resuming an exercise program, follow these tips to help avoid injury!

 

Always use proper form. No matter what type of physical exercise you are trying to get back into, maintaining your form is a crucial part of it. Understanding how to perform an exercise properly can be the difference between results and injury. Ensure that you maintain good posture and proper body positioning when exercising.

Take it easy at first. If you haven’t been participating in the type of vigorous physical activity that you used to be accustomed to, it's important to begin slow so that you aren't adding extra stress or strain to your joints and muscles. Inactivity leads to physical limitations and an increased risk of injury, so does trying to do too much too soon. Start small in the beginning with exercises and plan for a steady progression to ensure safety and results. 

Focus on health instead of a number on a scale. Set up an exercise regimen and a proper diet which will help you shed some pounds and maintain a healthy weight. Learning stress management strategies can also help improve your health and well-being. Your physical therapist can customize an exercise plan for your specific needs which may include stretching, aerobic exercise, weight training, or pain relief treatments if necessary. 

 

Our physical therapists are skilled at guiding people through rehabilitation and beyond. We will provide you with solutions that work!
