NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Warmer weather means people are doing a lot more outdoor activities, like playing sports. Making sure you are warmed up in the right way to prevent injury, should be as important as winning whatever competition you are in.
Joining us Saturday on Good Morning Connecticut is Dr. Robert Kipp, President of Pro-Health Chiropractic in Southport, to talk about what you need to know to prevent injuries when you are out playing in the summer sun.
Injuries are common in the summer for both children and adults, according to Dr. Kipp. Before folks head out the door Dr. Kipp says four things need to be remembered in order to prevent summertime injuries, including:
- Proper Rest
- Adequate hydration
- Dynamic mobility activities
- Static stretching
Click on the video above to watch the full interview and see Dr. Kipp demonstrate a few dynamic mobility exercises before playing sports, and some static stretching for after you’re finished.
