Monthly Health Topic:
The topic for May is Prevention Head to Toe. Keeping your elbows and shoulders in good shape increases joint stability, which is essential for minimizing injury. Flexibility exercises (stretching) keep the muscles around the joint from becoming too tight and enhancing range of motion. Strong shoulder muscles are less prone to injury than weak ones, so it is important to incorporate strengthening exercises. There are many strengthening and stretching activities that can help to increase stability in the shoulder and elbow area. Learn more about prevention.
