(HealthDay News) -- Walking is a safe and easy way to get exercise, but you should maintain proper form to prevent injury.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers these suggestions:
- Swing your arms as you walk.
- Walk with your head up, and make sure your back is straight.
- Keep your abdomen flat.
- Point your toes straight ahead.
- Walk with a long, easy stride that doesn't strain you.
