Prevention of Athletic Injuries

4 Tips to Keep you Safe While Active

Sometimes the best way to treat an injury is to avoid it all together.  Dr. Morton is a firm believer that his athletes should take care of themselves before, during and after physical activity. This approach helps patients maintain an athletic lifestyle for a long time.  Some helpful tips include:

  • Stay hydrated – dehydration can lead to heat cramps, fatigue and injury
  • Take a break – Resting allows time for recovery and enough energy to reach your goals
  • Warm-up – Warming up before exercise gives your muscles and tendons the opportunity to get going and prevents tears
  • Increase activity gradually – Rushing into an activity too soon is a recipe for injury.  Slowly develop your strength and endurance.

Dr. Morton takes a cooperative, patient-focused approach to determining how to proceed with your treatment.

He will discuss your preferences for  how we should proceed – whether you are looking for nonoperative or operative treatment.
