Health Tip: Ice Skate Safely
Make sure skates fit right

(HealthDay News) -- Ice skating is a great way to make the best of the cold winter weather while getting some exercise.

The National Safety Council offers this advice before you lace up your skates:

  • Make sure skates fit well and provide proper ankle support.
  • Before the first skate of the season, make sure blades are professionally sharpened.
  • Know the basics about skating, such as how to stop and safely fall.
  • If skating outdoors, skate in safe, prepared areas that are sure to hold up under your weight.
  • Inspect skating areas for cracks, holes and debris.
  • Never go skating by yourself.
  • Dress in warm clothing, and take a break when you feel tired or cold.
