How to protect yourself?

Protect your shoulders:

Avoid activities that require you to reach overhead for long periods.
Don't move your shoulder repeatedly for a prolonged period (such as when vacuuming or doing push-ups).
Do range-of-motion exercises to maintain strength and flexibility.
Use good posture.

Protect your elbows:

Don't grip tools or pens too tightly.
Don't clench your fists.
Avoid repeated hand and finger motions.
Don't lean on your elbows, and avoid bumping them.
Use a forearm band (tennis elbow strap) during physical activity.

Protect your wrists and hands:

Avoid repeating the same hand movement for long periods.
Use your forearm or entire arm instead of just your wrist or hand.
Take frequent breaks from doing fine handiwork or writing.
Enlarge handles on tools, utensils, pencils, and pens with tape or foam so your grip won't be too tight.
Carry objects with your palms open and flat.
Wear a splint during prolonged activity.

Protect your knees:

Use kneepads when gardening or kneeling on floors.
Do daily thigh-strengthening exercises (straight-leg lifts). Strong thigh muscles (quadriceps) provide added support for your knees.
Don't sit for long periods of time; get up and walk around every 20 to 30 minutes.
Do proper warm-up exercises before exercising or playing sports.
Turn your entire body rather than simply twisting at the waist.

Protect your hips:

When bending down to lift an object, bend and straighten your knees instead of your back or hips.
Sit on cushioned chairs.
Get a shoe lift if there is a difference in the lengths of your legs.

Protect your ankles and feet:

Wear walking or jogging shoes that provide good support. High-top shoes provide support for people with ankle problems.
Wear comfortable shoes that fit properly.
Wear heel cups or other shoe inserts as recommended by your doctor.
Exercise on level, graded surfaces.
