Boomeritis--ouch


Do you hurt all over? As one comedian said, “Are you tired from sleeping?”

Could be boomeritis, although that usually refers to over-stretching or over-exercising.

Sports injuries are up, up, up.

Someone is listening to the move more, exercise more chant.

An expert (the man who coined the term), named Nicholas DeNubile.MD, a Philadelphia orthopedic surgeon, says most of this pain is overuse.

Always wear protective gear—like bike helmets.

Don’t run around and work out only on weekends. You can’t “play yourself into shape” at Boomer ages.

Cross train. Alternate cardio, strength, flexibility.

Focus on your weak link. Core muscles? Legs? Upper body?

And remember common sense. Yeah, that again.
