Health Tip: Prevent Skating Accidents
Make sure you master basic skills

(HealthDay News) -- Inline skating is a fun way to get active. But it also can lead to injury.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends:

  • Learn basic skills before you skate into areas with traffic, especially how to stop.
  • Wear protective gear, including a helmet, wrist protectors, elbow pads and knee pads.
  • Do some warmup exercises before skating.
  • Keep to the right side of the road while skating, and avoid weaving in and out of traffic. Always obey all traffic signs.
  • Don't skate in areas that are crowded with pedestrians.
