Here are some tips to help lessen the risk of injury this Halloween.
Wear Comfy Shoes
This is a no-brainer, but when you are on your feet a lot, you should wear supportive and properly fitting shoes when walking long distances and trekking across uneven ground.
Avoid Restrictive Costumes
Costumes or accessories that drag on the ground or restrict full range of motion can increase the likelihood of stumbles and falls, so be sure these items are fitted appropriately. Consider wearing the costume prior to your Halloween night to test the mobility.
Keeping the muscles flexible and strong help maintain range of motion in the joints. Be sure to always stretch before any physical activity. Here are some stretches you can try!
Before, during, and even after trick-or-treating, it’s important to stay hydrated to keep the muscles working efficiently and effectively.
Avoid obstructive masks or eyewear
To avoid slips, trips and falls, masks and eyewear need to allow for full vision.
