The Division of Trauma, Surgical Critical Care and Burns reminds UC Walkers to reduce the risk of injury by:

  • Starting your walk slowly, both in pace and time
  • Don’t stretch cold muscles - after 5 minutes, stop and gently flex and point toes, circle ankles, reach one arm up - then the other, and slowly twist both directions from the waist.
  • Near the end, slow your pace and stretch after your walk
