Details for Ask the Professional 1/13

ask a Professional Q: I made a resolution to get in shape, how hard should I push it? Sarah Pettyjohn, PT, DPT A: You need to push yourself, but exercise should be eased into and progressed steadily and gradually. Following a structured plan that increases your activity incrementally and safely can help you stay healthy and pain free. Aim for long-term consistency, not overnight success. Be sure to schedule a rest day in your plan and get plenty of good sleep; your bones, joints, and muscles do their building and your immune system makes repairs during these recovery periods.
