Spring sports are beginning across the state of New Jersey. Here are a few tips for avoiding injuries:
1. Start slow: If you have not been active recently, you many need to ease into the sport. Start with light physical activity and gradually work your way up.
2. Get a physical: Most, if not all, sport teams require a thorough physical. Please remember to bring the necessary paperwork to be completed by your healthcare provider.
3. Hydrate: If you are dehydrated, injuries are more likely to occur.
4. Diet: Always eat breakfast. Do not eat a heavy meal less than 3 hours before to a vigorous workout or game.
