Reuters Health reports that middle-aged people are becoming increasingly active and, therefore, reporting more exercise-related injuries.  In the article, Dr. Ray Monto, a spokesperson for the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), states that these injuries are often a result of inadequate recovery time between demanding workouts and a lack of variety in exercises.  Dr. Monto recommends that boomers consult with a physician before beginning a workout program, eat well, and keep workouts varied and balanced.
