Monday, November 9, 20208:00am-10:00am: The Weekend Warrior
A Weekend Warriors is someone who is committed to an activity but, based on life, work, and family demands, has limited time to participate or train for that activity. As a result, these individuals do little or no exercise during the week and try to squeeze everything in on the weekend doing more than his/her body is ready to do. Baby boomers are crowding their doctors offices as a result of their quest to stay out of their doctors office. Exercise obsessed baby boomers are the second most common reason for doctor visits. Encouraged to stay healthy baby boomers are pushing the limits of their middle aged bodies abilities and filling our offices and operating rooms in an effort to keep on going.
Most complaints are minor injuries from overuse or poor conditioning. The most common reason for injury during participation is trying to do more than the body can handle.

Exam strategies and common treatment options will be shared with you.
