It’s the morning after your first sand volleyball game of the season and your entire body aches . . . sound familiar? Many adult seasonal athletes experience these symptoms due to lack of activity prior to starting spring and summer athletic activities. It is important to do a full body stretch prior to beginning any athletic activity. A light warm up after stretching by jogging in place or doing some jumping jacks will also help your body get ready for more intense activity. When you are improperly conditioned, there is a greater likelihood you will experience a sports injury. If you do, you will want to get it evaluated immediately by a sports medicine specialist. Miller Ortho offers a FREE* daily walk-in sports injury clinic from 9 to 10 a.m. at our Council Bluffs office. No appointment is necessary. The initial consultation is FREE. *Charges may apply for x-rays, supplies and follow-up visits. To find out more about our FREE* walk-in clinic, log on to www.millerortho.com/sports
