We all lead different lives and have different levels of activity but regardless of these things, we can all be prone to unexpected injury. Falls, slipping, bumping etc. These can all occur unexpectedly as we navigate our daily lives. It is something that we often take for granted because we never really take injuries seriously until they happen to you.
Luckily there are things we can do to protect ourselves from injury even when we may not realize that we are in harms way. With some of our best tips here you can better position yourself to stay healthy and active and avoid injuries altogether.
