Minimize Risk of Serious Gym Injuries

Workout Advice from a Bay Area Sports Injury Specialist

Before starting a new workout routine, learn to understand your individual limits, and consult a doctor before training. Some of the most common conditions in sports medicine (which many folks sustain at the gym) include injuries to the foot and ankle, knee, lower back, shoulder, or neck.
